A delegation of the Edah HaChareidis kashrus organization in Jerusalem already have their sights on the holiday of Sukkos in 2 months.
Rabbi Avrohom Yitzchok Ulman traveled to central Israel with his colleagues to inspect the esrogim orchards in the village of Kfar Chabad which are under the supervision of their Otzar Beis Din division.
Being in the midst of Shemittah, the seventh year in the seven-year agricultural cycle when land in the land of Israel is left to lie fallow, the rabbis left clear instructions on how produce should be grown.
Despite the many restrictions, the orchard’s owners were proud to report that they saw “a blessing,” and that their crop exceeded their expectations, both in quantity and quality.
