Chag Sukkot Sameach 🍋Dear friends 🌿🇮🇱🌿Mispuche 🍋

Turpentine or Biblical Terebinth
I will give you this land Terebinths of righteousness
Terebint is a place where we want to learn something together, but where we are also in a safe place.
From Gen 12:6, 7 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Shechem, unto the terebinth of Moreh; and the Canaanites were then in the land. Then the LORD appeared to Abram, and said, To thy seed I will give this land. And he built there an altar to the LORD who appeared to him.
The olive branch represents peace, reconciliation and hope.
Olive tree, the national tree of Israel
The dove that Noah sent out of the ark returns with an olive branch in its beak. Therefore, the olive branch symbolizes the return of life and is an international symbol of peace.
