Harvest With a Goal
Before dawn on the day before the harvest festival of Sukkoth, a dozen and a half teens are crouching in the vineyards of Meir Shfeya Youth Village, picking the best purple clusters. Their classmates are already on holiday vacation, but they have volunteered to stay behind to help with the grape harvest of the ripe carignan grapes that will be used for the village winery. This fieldwork will also help compensate the Village for their participation in the forthcoming educational trip to Ethiopia in November. Most of the students come from Ethiopian backgrounds—they were either born in Ethiopia or are children of immigrants from Ethiopia. Others are non-Ethiopian Israelis who were chosen for outstanding citizenship in the village. Date: 9/17/2013
