Orla and Reishit

by Rabanit Sharon Rimon

And when you come to the land and plant every type of fruit tree, then you shall consider their fruit as orla ("uncircumcised"); for three years it shall be "uncircumcised" for you; it shall not be eaten. And in the fourth year all of its fruit shall be holy as thanksgiving to God. And in the fifth year you shall eat its fruit, that it may yield for you its increase; I am the Lord your God.

Baruch Dayan HaEmet.

There is a chilling symbolism in the death of our alumnus Rabbi Elyashiv Knohl on the 5th of Iyar. Rav Knohl was born a few months after the fall of Gush Etzion, while his father, Dov Knohl, one of the founders of Gush Etzion, was captured by the Jordanians. Rav Knohl merited to take part in the renewal of Gush Etzion post 1967, and among other things, served as the rabbi of Kfar Etzion.

But beyond the national symbolism, Rabbi Elyashiv was both a scholar and a wonderful man, pleasant and welcoming, loving peace and pursuing peace, loved by people and certainly beloved by Hakadosh Baruch Hu. His book "Man and Woman" was a must-have for each couple before their wedding, explaining in detail the halachic foundations between man and wife, in such a way as to suit his Torah greatness and pleasant personality.

What's Happening in Israel


Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."
