A Hebrew lesson: All about goats From gedi to ez to tayish

"Said Rabbi Yosef: He who dreams of a goat, his year will be blessed; if he dreams about goats, his years shall be blessed, as it is written: "The goats' milk will suffice for your food" (Proverbs 27:27)."[1]

Rami bar Ezekiel once visited Bene Berak, where he saw some goats grazing under fig trees. Honey oozed down from the figs, and milk dripped from the goats, and they mingled with each other. So he quoted, "A land flowing with milk and honey" (Exodus 3:17) [2]
