Halakha of the Harvest with the Maggid of Melbourne, Levi Cooper

Fruit and vegetables are part of healthy living. In this series, the Maggid of Melbourne looks at some of the halakhic issues associated with defining what is a fruit and what is a vegetable.

Join Levi – the apple of Pardes’ eye – on this worldwide tour of exotic plant life, as he goes bananas, cherry-picking different topics, comparing apples and oranges, and trying to plumb the depths of different fruit and vegetables, while occasionally finding himself in a pickle.

A special podcast series in honor of the Shemitta year, albeit looking at an entirely different angle of agriculture and Jewish law. A series that promises to bear fruit. Don’t wait to hear about this through the grapevine: Tune in now!
