A Branch of G-d’s Planting

The Fifteenth of Shevat marks the New Year for Trees, and the Rebbe encouraged men, women and children to celebrate the day with a Farbrengen, a joyful gathering where people inspire each other in the service of G-d.
Tree (as metaphor of man), The, 15 Shevat, Lubavitcher Rebbe
A Branch of G-d’s Planting
Disc 188, Program 750

Event Date: 21 Shevat 5742 - February 14, 1982

The Fifteenth of Shevat marks the New Year for Trees, and the Rebbe encouraged men, women and children to celebrate the day with a Farbrengen, a joyful gathering where people inspire each other in the service of G-d.

In an address to children, the Rebbe explains the significance of the day.

A person is compared to a tree, and a child is like a sapling which is beginning to grow. We conduct ourselves correctly not by standing still, but rather, with every day, growing and developing more in our Jewish observance and in G-dliness.
