LB Olives Judea
I love trees, especially the native fruit-bearing trees of Israel that are mentioned in the Torah – olives (photo above), grapes, figs, dates, and pomegranates. Our citrus and deciduous orchards here are magnificent too, and if you’ve ever tasted Israeli fruit, it’s hard to eat anything else.
My best personal prayer sessions and musical inspirations are out in the orchards.

A Message For T’U Beshvat  <-click here for full version! On the 15th of Shevat, the sap begins once again to flow through the tree, heralding
the New Year for trees. This moisture will bring forth fruit in the spring. It is the day to pray for
a beautiful esrog. The custom is to eat fruits in order to be able to say the blessings on the
fruits on this day. הדר עץ פרי, a fruit of splendor, is gematria העץ פרי ברא, [Blessed are you Hashem] who created the fruit of the tree (they both equal 659). Have in mind to ask Hashem
for a gorgeous esrog when saying this blessing.
When the world was created, every tree bore fruit. Because of the sin of the forbidden
fruit, most trees are today fruitless. With the coming of Mashiach, all trees will, once again,
bear fruit. Just as we pray for a good year on Rosh Hashanah, so do the trees on their Rosh
Hashanah.
On the 15th of Shevat, we should join the trees in their prayers, and ask that they all
bear fruits. We should pray for elms, spruce, oak, fur, pine and all empty, fruitless trees. ” ועץ
השדה יתן פריו
” , ‘and the [barren] tree of the field will give forth fruit [when Mashiach will
come] is gematria בשבט עשר חמשה, the 15th
of Shevat (they both equal 1236). On T’U
BeShevat it is appropriate to pray that Mashiach should come so that all barren trees should
once again give forth fruit.
You will find many species of trees in an encyclopedia. However, there is one species
you will not find, and that is man. The verse 17 states, ” ” , ‘A person is like a השדה עץ האדם כי
tree.’ In his behavior and constitution, a person resembles an inverted tree – his roots are in
heaven and he grows all the way down to earth.
Our roots are exiled to Amalek the original snake. Therefore, there are many fruitless
trees among the Jewish people. If we examine ourselves, we may come to the conclusion
that we are like a fruitless tree! “Where are my mitzvos, which are the fruits of a person?
Even the fruits I do produce are of inferior quality, they are not desirable to Hashem!”
Hashem has a song for the Jewish people. However, they do not have the transistor to
pick up the wavelengths, so the Prophet Yeshaya transmitted it to the Jewish people
.
The Beauty of Shirah (Song)
This Shabbos is referred to as Shabbos Shirah because the parsha recounts the
shirah the Jewish people recited after their miraculous crossing of the Yam Suf (Sea of
Reeds).
However, a Shabbos is not named after a mere part of the parsha. If the Shabbos was
so named, we may infer that the entire parsha is a song and therefore the whole Shabbos is
one of song.
What creates the pleasantness of poetry, the song of words? Each individual word that
it is composed of has no beauty to it when it stands alone.
The pleasantness of a poem comes – not from each individual word – but from the
correlation of the words to each other.
Each line of a poem ends with a word that rhymes with the next line. If you recite each
line by itself, you will not feel the pleasantness; but when you recite them together, ah! Why?
Because there is a marriage between the lines, they match; they are suitable for each other.
Tu B’Shvat: This coming Shabbat I love trees, especially the native fruit-bearing trees of Israel that are mentioned in the Torah – olives (photo above), grapes, figs, dates, and pomegranates. Our citrus and deciduous orchards here are magnificent too, and if you’ve ever tasted Israeli fruit, it’s hard to eat anything else.
My best personal prayer sessions and musical inspirations are out in the orchards.
