אֶשְׁכֹּל הַכֹּפֶר. יֵשׁ בֹּשֶׂם שֶׁשְּׁמוֹ כֹּפֶר, כְּמוֹ "כְּפָרִים עִם נְרָדִים", וְעָשׂוּי כְּעֵין אֶשְׁכֹּלוֹת:

A cluster of henna. There is a spice called כֹּפֶר as in, “Henna כְּפָרִים with spikenard,”51Below 4:13. and it is shaped somewhat like clusters.

בְּכַרְמֵי עֵין גֶּדִי. שֵׁם מָקוֹם, וְשָׁם הוּא מָצוּי. וְרָאִיתִי בָּאַגָּדָה שֶׁאוֹתָן כְּרָמִים עוֹשִׂין פֵּרוֹת אַרְבָּעָה אוֹ חֲמִשָּׁה פְעָמִים בַּשָּׁנָה. וְדֻגְמָא הִיא לְכַמָּה כַפָּרוֹת וּמְחִילוֹת, שֶׁמָּחַל לָהֶן הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא עַל כַּמָּה נִסְיוֹנוֹת שֶׁנִּסּוּהוּ בַמִּדְבָּר:

In the vineyards of Ein-Gedi. [Ein-Gedi is] the name of a place, and there it is common. I saw in Aggadah that those vineyards produce fruits four or five times a year. And this is an allegory of the many atonements and forgiveness that the Holy One, Blessed Is He, forgave them for the numerous trials with which they tried Him in the wilderness.52Alternatively, henna are composed of many seeds and their fragrance diffuses over great distances, symbolizing that the miracles God performed were heard from afar.
