5773, Greetings for the New Year

Yes, here's this year's fruit head. 
Be a head or ahead and not a tail nor a tale-teller, either.

This year's head is based on a lemon, no, not a lemon like our first washing machine that kept breaking down.  I mean a lemon for its vitamins and minerals, magic healing properties.  I drink water with freshly squeezed lemon juice whenever I'm not feeling well.  I find it much more effective than most potions and medicines, from the conventional to the exotic.  Try it the next time you have a cold, sore throat or flu.

The grape if from our garden, our personal, family vineyard.  In Jewish lore grapes are symbols of fertility and the Shiloh/Shomron area are specifically mentioned in the Bible as a prime grape-growing are.  His eyes are raisins which are dried grapes.

And he's wearing a crown of an olive branch.  OK, that may be a bit Greek, but Israel's Paralympic athletes did win quite a few medals.  Olives are also mentioned in the Bible.  Olive oil was used for many things including anointing our kings.  G-d willing it will be used to anoint the Moshiach, speedily in our days...
