Plant a Tree in Israel for the Holidays! ✡ “It Will Sprout Again” – ISRAEL365

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down,
that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

כִּי יֵשׁ לָעֵץ תִּקְוָה אִם יִכָּרֵת וְעוֹד יַחֲלִיף וְיֹנַקְתּוֹ לֹא תֶחְדָּל

איוב יד:ז

kee yaysh la-AYTZ tik-VAH im yi-ka-RAYT v’-OD ya-kha-LEEF v’-yo-nak-TO
lo tekh-DAL

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Job contrasts the passing of man to the death of a tree. Once a man has departed from this world, he can not be brought back to life. A tree, on the other hand, though seemingly lifeless, can be revived. Similarly, Isaiah writes that though a tree appears dead after it sheds its leaves in the fall, the trunk remains from which the tree will flower again in the spring. Isaiah compares the Children of Israel to the tree. Though at times it appears that they will be annihilated and cease to exist, a holy remnant always remains from which they will grow anew and flourish (Isaiah 6:13). After centuries of countless battles over the Land of Israel, the holy soil aches to renew and blossom once again, just as the Jewish people yearn to revive the national spirit.

Even as the cold winter winds blow,
signs of life and renewal are always blossoming, if even in the most unexpected of places.
