Coffee for the tribes Double the size of the coffee urn and add six pourers. The coffee will flow faster and fresher. The pourers should be universal, not a specific one for each tribe. Now that your coffee has been produced at a double portion,everyday can be treated as shabbos.Just as you plant for six years,the harvests will be so abundant the land rests on the seventh year.G-D will provide the water.

Many thanks to all those who made it available. Reply
