The Torah tells us that man is a tree in the field. Therefore, the New Year for trees - Tu B'Shvat, which falls today (Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015) - is our New Year too. Customarily, the Brody Tu B'Shvat Seder table holds 26 varieties of fresh and dried fruit to celebrate. Our salad is garnished with the best Galilee olive oil and we spread ripe avocados from the Carmel Coast on our home-baked bread. We make the "Hagefen" blessing on wine from the Golan, the Galilee, Judea, Samson Valley and Samaria - the best in the world. Don't forget to pray for a good etrog today. May The Almighty grant you strength of body, mind and soul, as well as the sweetest of fruits, both tree fruit and fruit of the womb, amen!
