Flowers in Israel
Flowers cultivated in Israel in hothouses have become a big business since at least 2000, as a home product and an export.
“The color pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others.”
“Other meanings associated with the color pink:
• The phrase “in the pink” means healthy.
• The expression “tickled pink” means being happy, content.”
“Wild flowers are known to grow within the hot area of the country. However, recently, there has been a new development. Various types of flowers are being grown in Israel. These flowers are shipped mainly to the retail flower market of the United States, wherein most of the customers are Jewish people.”
“The roses grown within the hot area of Israel is regarded as a miracle. It has also been known as symbols of the courageous spirit of Israelis. The roses stand for their innovation, perseverance and diligence. It also stands for their strong will to get on with life despite challenges. Since these roses are upheld as such, they are constantly used during primary holidays of the Jewish people. They use roses to adorn their altars whenever they hold synagogues, and they give roses to their loved ones to show their great love.”
Sparkers, I wish these things for you this Shabbat: universal love, health, happiness, contentment, miracles, courage, perseverance, a strong will, and peace. In fact, Shabbat Shalom!
