Deluge Strikes Biblical Sheep in Israel


After two years of dealing with bureaucracy, Canadian couple Gil and Jenna Lewinsky airlifted to Israel the first “Jacob sheep,” a hundred specimens of a breed allegedly descended from Yaakov Avinu’s spotted and speckled flocks or from their close relatives.

The flock was refused government quarantine in Ramle and instead taken to a distant disused ostrich farm in the Negev, where the sheep were hit by torrential rains. The road there became inaccessible and the sheep were lying in ankle deep mud.

The Agricultural Ministry originally refused to assist, but then sent out a team from the veterinary services.
