IN 1882 MY GRANDFATHER, MICHAEL CHAMILETZKI, SET FOOT UPON THE LAND OF ZICHRON YAAKOV. HE MADE HIS FIRST HOME IN NEARBY SHEFEYA AND WAS CHOSEN BY BARON EDMUND DE ROTHSCHILD TO PLANT AND DEVELOP VINEYARDS ON THIS LAND. IN 1925, THE FAMOUS POET CHAIM NACHMAN BIALIK VISITED AND GAVE MICHAEL A NEW HEBREW FAMILY NAME, "TISHBI" AND ABBREVIATION MEANING "A RESIDENT OF SHEFEYA IN ISRAEL". FOUR GENERATIONS HAVE PASSED AND I STILL REMEMBER HARVESTING BY HAND IN MY FAMILYS VINEYARDS AND BRINGING THE WAGONS OF GRAPES TO BE PRESSED IN THE NEARBY WINERY. WE STILL FOLLOW THE TRADITIONAL GROWING METHODS PASSED ON TO ME BY FATHER AND GRANDFATHER. Jonathan Tishbi PROPRIETOR www.tishbi.com Tishbi JPG 1241x972 logo
