#002: Pre-Aviv in the Jordan Valley Feb 27, 2015

Pre-Aviv, Jordan Valley, barley, vegetative state, grass, flowering stage, Aviv, 12th Hebrew month, new moon, Hebrew year, Nehemia Gordon, Hebrew, Yehovah, yhvhI went down to examine the barley in the Jordan Valley today (Friday Feb 27, 2015). I was thought I might find barley in the vegetative state (like grass) after the snow and hail. Instead, I found barley in the flowering stage. This means there's a very good chance that the barley will be Aviv by the end of the 12th Hebrew month. This would make the new moon on Saturday March 21 the beginning of the Hebrew year. Here's a discussion I carried out in the field with Devorah Gordon about the Aviv in general and this year in particular. -Nehemia

    What happens with the Av barely, in case of (G-d forbid) drought, hail, or fire to the field?

    • Barley is very resilient and grows wild all over Israel so even in a drought, hail, fire and shemitah year, barley is found all over the country, everywhere. You couldn’t get rid of it even if you wanted to.

    What happens in a smittah year with Av barley?

  • Laura Olson says:

    Just reading about the Exile, and it seems that only the poorest people were left in Israel; the rest went to Babylon. As a pattern for judgement to come I can’t help but wonder, did this remnant in II Kings 24:14 establish an identiy of any kind, any history? What were they doing 70 years later when the exile ended? Don’t know anywhere else to post this question.
