Jayyous is a Palestinian village whose land is divided by the Wall. The
owners of the Olive groves have a permit to work them - with the
limitation of days, hours and number of people who allowed to help -
that is not much.
We have been there to give a hand for several hours.
Yafit -Gamila- one of the organizer(with Yaakov Manor) calls it "light harvest":)

We have been about 80 people, divided to different groves. It was a hot
day, hitting sun, but the mood was great. I was with the group of Abu
Azam, who is considered as the head of farmers in Jayyous village. A
lovely person, warm hearted, who told us not to work too hard but to
enjoy the harvesting.
He said to us: "you are the handkerchief for our tears"......which left us with tears.

I am going to be back there..
pls join us

For some reason I am not able to post this into the "discussion frame", so here it is:

As you have already noticed I am a Native American Indian the people native to these lands refer to the sacred sisters in many of our prayers, the sacred sisters are Corn, Beans and Squash we believe them to be sacred because they eare the first to come for harvesting they are the first foods to ripen from our mother earth and we honor them every year with a feast in thier honor.
We are by the nature of the lands upon which we were born hunters and farmers.
I would like nothing more than to join you and the village of Jayyous when it again is time to harvest this wonderful food unfrotunately I am so very far from the groves of Jayyous and quite frankly do not posess the means to travel so far from my home but rest assured my mind will be there with all who pick the gift of mother earth when next the Olive comes ripe.
Thanks for sharing this , Eric.
I am sure you be with me in my mind the next time I be there.
