1. We have just concluded the Minchah service. We did not recite the Tachanun prayers, because this represents the beginning of the New Year of the Trees.

May the New Year of the Trees be celebrated amidst great and immeasurable success for each and every member of the Jewish people wherever they are located. This success will be increased by tzedakah which will hasten the coming of the true and ultimate redemption led by Mashiach.
