progenitors of our legacy
Yahely, Sh'maya, and Gavriel are born of a revolutionary lineage . . .
a lineage of uncommon people, who, for the sake of justice,
have deserted the status quo and walked the road less traveled, brilliantly!
We are grateful for our legacy; and, like our progenitors,
we take on the walk, anew each day,
building the niche that is ours to carve out in the pursuit of justice.
not live forever. As such then, he should live out his days, L’Chaim – To Life!
We at Heph'zibah and Beulah Farms know this: That we do not want to reach a day when we shall look about and confront that we have created a void:
That we have dashed about unconscionably from apathy to apathy, from injustice to injustice, without a thought for the sacredness of life, endlessly repeating a death-bound existence;
That not only at the moment of Divine Justice shall we be accountable for the time that we have lived, but also that at every moment of our lives we are each to live responsibly to the life that we hold and to the lives that we are to behold;
That we should each be able to say and to show to ourselves and to our future generations – Here, here is the good that I have created for you and for me!

A Good Land!
A good land is a naturally operating farming civilization with its own citizens: creatures that have a stake in its sustainability: cattle, sheep, goats, fowl, dogs, vegetation of various types, micro-organisms of all micro-sizes, and humans.
Individuals contributing as per their respective agilities : the young with maturing strength, the old with matured wisdom; the healthy with idealism, the ill with experience; the workers with learning , the leaders with teaching.
This civilization faces its challenges, whether natural or unnatural, whether foreign or domestic, with an eye for victory. This civilization recycles, cleans, ferments, and, in essence, uses everything, respectively, both the good and the bad, to transform, to rebuild, to repair, and to improve.
This is Nature and this is a good land.
Joy, peace, love, and happiness; they are all good
And, above all, Justice is better!
