Today’s Israel Inspiration

Today is the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Sh’vat, known as Tu B’shvat: the New Year for the Trees. It is a time when all those who love the Land rejoice in its bounty and eat of its blessed fruit. During these days, the soil of the Land has already been saturated with winter rains, so that trees planted after Tu B’Shevat will take firm root and thrive. Take part in the beloved tradition of planting trees in the Holy Land in honor of Tu B’Shevat!

The Biblical Significance of
Tu B’Shvat

Have you ever wondered what Tu B’shvat is really all about? Or what its connection is to the Bible? Rabbi Tuly explains all!

What’s More Important Than Praying for Messiah’s Arrival?

So important are planting trees in Israel that the ancient rabbis in the Talmud taught us that if a person is planting a tree and hears that the Messiah has arrived, he should finish planting the tree before going to greet the Messiah!

Today is Tu B’Shevat, the 15th of the Hebrew month Shevat, and marks the New Years of the Trees. It is a very important day for the Seven Species identified in the Torah to have special significance to the Land of Israel: Wheat, barley, grapes, dates, figs, olives, pomegranates. Rebbetzin Siegelbaum takes you on a journey of the Holy Land through the seven species as she traces their significance from Biblical times until modern day, delves deeply into their mystical and medicinal properties, and offers pages of wholesome recipes for each.

“I Love the Beautiful Pictures”

It’s great to hear from you and make new friends from all over the world. Please send me an email and let me know how you are enjoying Israel365 (don’t forget to say where you are from!).

Hi,  I waited  awhile to email you,  because I wanted to word this correctly.  First off,  I am a Roman Catholic and believe in Jesus as the  Messiah.  That being said,  I totally believe that the Hebrews,  Jews, as I do not know what is proper name, are the chosen people of God and have total rights to Israel and Jerusalem,  I pray our new president will regonize that. I  have studied the Torah,  and what we call the Old Testament,  and all archeological findings and what I have read, convinces me of that! Please,  I am not a sychophant, I am a believer and love God with all my being.  I am unable to send money as I am partially disabled,  but I vote and help spread the word about Gods love for the Jewish people.  I am appalled at the u.n. and am ashamed that the U.S. did not stand up for one of our best allies! I wish I could do more,  but, I do what I can.  Please keep me on your email,  as I love reading the emails and love the beautiful pictures.  Your friend, Brady Mayes—May God bless you always!
