Rebbetzin Siegelbaum takes you on a journey of the Holy Land through the Seven Species identified in the Torah to have special significance to the Land of Israel: Wheat, barley, grapes, dates, figs, olives, pomegranates. She traces their significance from Biblical times until modern day, delves deeply into their mystical and medicinal properties, and offers pages of wholesome recipes for each. The author contends that the Seven Species have immense potential to be transformed into spiritual energy, enabling us to perform mitzvoth, pray, learn Torah, and express creativity. She defends her position by revealing the nutritional, spiritual, and Kabbalistic aspects of each of the Seven Species, as well as natural healing methods using the medicinal properties of the Fruits of the Land to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. The result is a book that is unique in its integration of Torah teachings with medical nutritional research, all combined with a multitude of nutritious, colorful and creative recipes.
