Plate 1. When You Enter the Land

The papercut depicts the ritual of havaat bikurim, the bringing of the first fruits, along with the quote, “And you will bring these fruits of the ground that you will harvest from the land” (Deuteronomy 26:2). The woven basket overflows with the seven species. Gazelles above the basket symbolize the grace and beauty of Israel, which is referred to as eretz ha-tzvi, the land of the gazelle (Daniel 11:16, 41).
