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.

The clockwise and counter-clockwise impact of the spiral within may be within, though I think definitely somewhere in the studies one becomes aware of the qualities as compared to The Rebbe of Blessed Memory, reference to the quality... in this video. Striving to be, regardless of what may have happened, seemingly can be moment to be drawn in more deeply, with passion to the idea of this day? LIFE? In which we are embedded? Reply
