Pesach mission #8: Smell the flowers

Last Shabbat was Rosh Chodesh Nisan.  It is tradition to say a blessing now on the flowering fruit trees that smell so wonderful. Take a few minutes from your hectic schedule and go out to an orchard.  Recite the blessing below:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה’ אֱ-לֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם שֶׁלֹּא חִסֵּר בְּעוֹלָמוֹ כְּלוּם וּבָרָא בוֹ בְּרִיּוֹת טוֹבוֹת וְאִילָנוֹת טוֹבוֹת לֵהָנוֹת בָּהֶם בְּנֵי אָדָם.

Translation: Blessed are You, L‑rd our G‑d, King of the universe, who has made nothing lacking in His world, and created in it goodly creatures and goodly trees to give mankind pleasure. Source: Chabad.org It is so important not to forget to stop and breathe during this oh-so-crazy time. Why don’t you make it a picnic while you are there? image Ready for the next mission?  Go to Pesach mission #9: The children are not the Passover sacrifice!

Rami Levy has it!

Good sales, that is. 

I just did a very quick run- through and found 6 packs of Mei Eden and Neviot water for 6.75 a package (limit 2 packages).  Rimonim are 3.90/kg (Shufersal had them for 8.90/kg).  The chicken line was out of sight so I guess they have good deals but I am not a fan of their meat (see previous post) so I don’t know what they were.  Delidag gefilte fish was 9.49- better than Shufersal at 10.  For those of you who buy mana hama, the Wili Food ones were 3/10 shekels.  They also have the Yoplait and other Tnuva dairy sales currently going on.

If you spend 49 shekels you ge a free calendar and if you spend 99 shekels you get a magazine with recipes and a coupon for free shipping from Prachim2u (flowers) if you spend over 150 shekels.
