Israelis Volunteer to Pick Grapes Due to Labor Shortage Caused by War

Agriculture By TPS   •   13 June, 2024

Jerusalem, 13 June, 2024 (TPS) -- Israelis have stepped up and volunteered to work in agriculture in areas in the north of the county. Local residents were forced to evacuate these areas due to the danger from ongoing Hezbollah terrorist rocket attacks and the concern that the terrorist group might escalate its attacks.

Here one such volunteer picks grapes at Kibbutz Meirav, located in the northeast of Israel about 30 miles south of Tiberias.
