New Year's Day for Trees

Posted 1/16/2014 5:12am by Rod Hornbake.

Today is Tu B'Shevat, the 15th day of the month of Shevat in the Hebrew calendar.  It is the day that celebrates the first buds on the trees in the land of Israel.

Jonathon Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom, has prepared a meditation for today that reads in part.

"If we see our role as masters of the earth as a unique opportunity to truly serve and care for the planet, its creatures, and its resources, then we can reclaim our status as stewards of the world, and raise our new generations in an environment much closer to that of Eden."
