Look inside


Dear Reader! During the immigration a lot of us became religious. We rejoined our old religion of Judaism. The most important sacramental book is the Talmud Pentateuch, absorbed an enormous historical information about the ways of migration, the laws which related to the life of the Jewish communities after the exodus from the slavery in Egypt and in the state of Israel. Ten of the fundamental commandments of the Torah are accepted by the most civilized countries of the world and introduced in the Constitution. The Torah contains some plants, which are used in religious rituals, hygiene, and the construction of the Ark. There are also numerous plants of the period of slavery in Egypt.

Now most of those plants are unknown. These were the plants used by our ancestors. The goal of this Brochure is to familiarize ourselves with the plants used by our ancestors and to deeper understand their uses. From the description of the plants is clear that most of the spices, and medicines came from the plant from the tropic and subtopic regions of the neighbor countries. One of the big caravan ways went from Persia to the Red sea through Israel into Syria and farther in the city Tir on the Eastern border of the Mediterranean Sea. From South Asia are some spices such as black pepper, paprika, cubel, pepper, cinnamon, senna, clover tree, ginger. From Africa came mirra and ammomum. Many plants came from Central Asia-Asafetida, from little Asia -saffron crocus and much other plants. In Israel grew acacia arabica, mandragora, hyssop and other useful plants. The knowledge from the Torah shows that Israel had access to the spices long before the construction of the First and Second Temples.

The spices were used in religious rituals, medical goals, cooking and cosmetics. Their use in religious rituals was very important as medical-sanitary remedy. Thinking about the hot climate of Israel and the large number of sacrifices in the Temples, the condition of the deficiency of the water in the summer months when it was necessary for cleansing after the sacrifice rituals with animals, its clear the necessity of the spices which have an antiseptic property which neutralize the unpleasant smell. A suite of the exquisite spices composed the sacred ointment for the ritual assignation of a high post of clergymen and kings were spread in their hands, chest, head and garments. They were named G-d's Ointments. In the compound of the sacred ointments contained a lot of different Kinds of spices, which together made a stable aroma, which outwore a lot of decades. There is a question?
For all of those thousand of years, did the form of these plants of the Torah change? There are examples that they didn't. The seeds of the Hindu lotus found in deposits of turf in Mongolia are determined as 1200 years old by the method of carbon dissipation. Being so, they are small, and have bloomed and fertilized. In comparison with modern seeds, we didn't find any changes in the morphological or physiological quality. But the old palm trees in Israel "mafusail" mysteriously disappeared. And now 2000 years (in the 73 year of the new era a-ch-h) the biologists, during their archaeological excavations in the old fortification of the fortress Massada, established it. But the artificial sort which as we know keeps its properties when it is in steady care but when it lacks care it degenerates and becomes wild again. This is the reason why we can say by all means that all plants from the Torah really grew when the Torah appeared.

When this brochure was written, we kept this order. We first brought a passage of the Torah where we made mention of the Bible plants. Then we give the names of the plants in Latin, English, Hebrew in Russian transcription and in other languages; family, country where the plant is from. We also give the natural plants and places of proliferation where it is cultivated, a short botanical description, the chemical temper of the used organ, use in food or medical importance and some prescription of folk medicine.

Please take care over this brochure, It contain sacred excerpts of the Torah.

The plants presented in the Torah, which was present throughout all of human kind. Used in food, medicine, and rituals. The cultivation of plants helped man survive and flourish throughout history. To this day, these plants are utilized; due to modern advances in biology, the uses of these plants have widened. From a botanical point of view, as a specialist, I would like to assure readers that this book contains all aspects of these plants, their species, uses, and how they affect the body. These affects can be positive to the human body, for example when one is sick, certain plants, when used correctly, can be used as herbs, and heal the body's discomfort. They can also have detrimental effects: For example, one may overdose on these herbs, and it can lead to injury. This book will guide you through utilizing these plants for your benfit.The publication of the book " The Plants of the Torah" in both Russian and English, will widen the variety of readers. We as Christians count the Torah as the "Greatest covenant". This is why this book will be interesting for Christians as well. We can all consider it as a work of art.

The importance of the Torah for Jews and all humanity is hard toovervalue. "See into, and see into again, because it's all inside",said our sages (Avot 5:26). Included in the Torah are all related to the human life and the existence of the world. It's contemporary for young adults (men and women), and due to the science, it opens new faces. It's the first time in our society the appearance of a book which connects religion with modern science. It opens the dialogue between the old and contemporary usage of the plants of medicine. There are a lot of qualitative illustrations. This book is not big involume, but it is high in quality. Certainly the Torah doesn't writeabout all old used plants, but the plants noted are not all known and the main aim is to introduce the method of their usage. These plants are ritual, nutritious , technical; spice-aromatics accompanied the men thousands of years and didn't lose this function. The famous Ram-Bam wrote that all plants are useful and is a big mistake to say that some plants are needless. I think that the work of the doctor of biological sciences Yuzef Murdakhayev "The Plants of the Torah" is actual And useful, And the qualitative transition into English makes the book disposable to the English speaking people as to the Russian speaking people making a wider circle of readers. I want to wish to the author: G-d's grace and good health and well being so that he could continue to work for our folk. ... Читать далее »

Torah is the book of books, acknowledged by the entire world from which we learn the laws of Nature and Existence. From Ancient times, it brings to us the Jewish history, the periods of their glory and of their decline. We find there the laws of hygiene, medicine and knowledge about mineralogy, plants and animals as well as their use, for more than 3300 years the Torah is the everyday book of the Jews. Books about the Torah are written often and there are many scholarly works. But on each stage of the societal development, we understand more deeply its context and meaning. The book "Plants of the Torah" is a very timely work. It will help the immigrants, synagogue-comers to understand deeper the life of our ancestors, to find out about the old plants and how to use them in contemporary events. In conclusion, I'll mention a story from the Torah. A getaway young man suffered hunger and thirst during a trip in a desert. Suddenly he saw a tree and when he came to the tree he found a spring. He drank and laid down. Then he saw fruits on the tree and he ate them and fell asleep. After awaking he said to the tree: "I thank you for the shade, water and fruits. You have everything. I would like to bless your prosperity so they will always have shade, water and fruits, AMEN. As a sign of appreciation for your work, I extend to you the same blessings. Chief Rabbi of USA and Canada Yitzhak Yeoshuv
