|Palm Trees at the Ein Gedi Oasis, overlooking the Dead Sea|
|Your stately form is like the palm, Your breasts are like clusters. Song of Songs 7:8 (The Israel Bible™)|
זֹאת קוֹמָתֵךְ דָּמְתָה לְתָמָר וְשָׁדַיִךְ לְאַשְׁכֹּלוֹת
ZOT ko-ma-TAYKH da-m’-TAH l’-ta-MAR v’-sha-DA-yikh l’-ash-ko-LO
The date is one of the seven special species of Eretz Yisrael (Deuteronomy 8:8). Like each of the other species, the date, which grows from a palm tree, is also a symbol of the People of Israel. The Sages teach that the palm tree is unique, in that every part of the tree can be used for various purposes including food, shelter, and fuel. Similarly, each member of the Jewish people has a unique mission involving various areas of endeavor, such as Torah study, charity, and other good deeds.
However, the date only has one pit, illustrating that while each individual has a separate mission, the nation has but one heart united by the common goal of fulfilling Hashem’s will in this world. During this time that we are spending alone, it is a perfect opportunity to reflect upon our mission. What are our strengths and skills, and how can we use them to make the world a better place? The world awaits our positive impact, now more than ever before!
