A Jurassic Park Tu B’Shvat Miracle in Israel

Featuring Dr. Elaine Solowey and David Lehrer of the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies in Israel to talk about the miracle story of how Dr. Solowey was able to recreate the long extinct native Judaean Date Palm, which just this past year produced fruit. For those not in the know, when Israel is written about as “a land flowing with milk and honey,” the honey being referred to is the honey extracted from the native Judaean date, and no one has known what that tasted like for thousands of years…until now. It’s a real Jurassic Park story.
This is our Federation’s Tu B’shvat gift to you. There is no charge.
