    Take a ride in the Galilee hills,
    get the feel of the land with the original organic shock absorbers!
    We haven't gotten our donkeys to speak
    as Balaam's did, but there may be a
    message here.

    How does wool become cloth? How does milk become cheese?
    Follow in the footsteps of shepherds like Moses, David, Rabbi Akiva, Jacob and Sons. Taste what they tasted.
    Smell what they smelled. Shear the sheep and spin it into genuine wool, and milk the goats to make fresh cheese: you can spread it on the pita you'll bake yourselves – yum!
