pomegranate tree

“For a man is as a tree of the field”

by yedidah on January 24, 2013


Tu b’Shvat , the New Year for Trees, is not just a day which marks the year for tithes, but has spiritual significance. This was first revealed by the Kabbalists of the town of Safed in the northern Galilee. They instituted a “Seder” in which the table is spread with many fruits, and we appreciate the bounty God gives us. We  also look at the inner  meaning  of the fruit and of the tree in our relationship with God and our world .
