In this week’s Torah reading, Pharaoh is haunted by mysterious dreams.
In one dream, he sees seven sheaves of wheat, thin and beaten looking. These seven poor looking sheaves of wheat swallow up seven healthy, robust sheaves of wheat, and presumably, remain unchanged. Pharaoh awakens, quite frightened and summons his interpreters.
Here we have our own interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream. And it comes in the form of 7 sour sticks (I took the full length sour sticks and cut them in half) “eating” 7 thick red licorice bits. The end result in the picture is 7 sour sticks — though I suspect in real life math, the end result will be an empty plate.
