Trees and Hope ✡ “Its Shoots Will Not Cease” – Israel365

There is hope for a tree; If it is cut down it will renew itself;
Its shoots will not cease

Job 14:7 (The Israel Bible™)

כִּי יֵשׁ לָעֵץ תִּקְוָה אִם־יִכָּרֵת וְעוֹד יַחֲלִיף וְיֹנַקְתּוֹ לֹא תֶחְדָּל
Hear the verse in Hebrew

KEE YAYSH la-AYTZ tik-VAH im yi-ka-RAYT v’-OD ya-kha-LEEF v’-yo-nak-TO LO


This week marks the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat:
The New Year of the Trees

Trees and Hope

Iyov (Job) contrasts the passing of man to the death of a tree. Once a man has passed, he cannot be brought back to life. A tree, on the other hand, though seemingly lifeless can be revived. The children of Israel are compared to a tree; at times it has appeared that the Jews are being annihilated and will cease to exist, but a holy remnant always remains from which the Children of Israel grow anew and flourish. Pictured above is a stunning photo of a tree in the badlands of Ruhama, in Israel’s Negev region.
