In chapter 5 of the Book of Yeshayahu, the prophet describes Israel as a rebellious vine which produces inferior fruits. Chapter 27 presents a happy conclusion to the prophecy with Hashem’s song to His vineyard. While God may punish, it is not out of anger or fury, but the hope that it will lead to harmony between Israel and Hashem. In this chapter, Israel is described as attached to its land with an unbreakable connection, like a deeply rooted vineyard. As a result, “Yaakov shall strike root, Yisrael shall sprout and blossom, and the face of the world shall be covered with fruit.” Indeed, with the contemporary return of the Jews to Eretz Yisrael, the former desert land has begun to blossom and bud, a sure sign of divine favor. The words of our biblical prophets are coming to life as the Land of Israel is blooming and Samaria is once again dotted with vineyards. Be a part of this miraculous period in history.
The land of milk and honey was an empty land for generations. But, now for the first time in generations, there are acres and acres of vines that cover wide swaths of Land all over the Holy Land – especially in the Land of Samaria.
