1.

.I am one of the oldest and common trees in the land of Israel. you can find trees like me, thousand years old in the Galilee.

I was major actress in the story of Chanukah: when the people of Israel wanted to lit the menorah in the temple,they used only one small can of my oil the only one they could find. But guess what? My oil lit the menorah 8 days and it was a big miracle.

Today,when thers no temple you can just find me in the super-market,un the vegatable section,in a can or a bottle.

Who am I?

.we both look a little bit the same.

The _______ is an important grain in Israel.Because it requires less water than no. 1 , it grows even in the fields of the Negev. The harvest begins in the month of Nissan and two weeks later it was brought to the temple as a part of the pesach festival in Jerusalem.

. I have rich red flowers, and dark red fruit. my shape is very interesting, if you go to your sinsgo ge on shabbat you may see me made out from gold decorating the torah.

Who am I?

5.

Ill start from the beginning: prophet micha has mentioned me in his vision of peace of land: each man will sit beneath his grapevine and his _______ tree and no one will fear.thats true,my tree makes so much shade,you can just sit and relax and eat some of my fruit in a very hot day in the summer.you can eat me dry or fresh.i am a symbol of fertility.

6.

.i usually grow up with a few houndred frits like me,on a very tall tree.this tree is very useful,especially in the holiday of suukot:the branches are being used for civer,the fibers for rope and the trunk for building.

By the end of the summer-we are picked from the trees,when we are already yellow and being eaten fresh or dry.

Oh!I forgot! I have a major part in rosh hashana too.the honey that is made out of me,is being eaten together with the apple when everyone blesses each other may yoh have a good and sweet year.

Who am I?
