Every winter, as the first Jaffa oranges arrived, my father used to tell us about his first encounter with a Jaffa orange. He told us how his mother let all the kids smell and touch it first, and then very carefully peeled and divided the segments among the children, telling them that each segment held the rays of the warm sun from “the land of our fathers.” He used to say that was the best-tasting orange he ever ate.Times have changed, and one can now get oranges almost all year round in Europe as well as America, but a gift of citrus fruit and other goodies from Israel is still very welcome.
