Passover Seder Alone Or For The First Time

cycle of the year Apr 08, 2020
 

This year will be a very different kind of a Seder for many people who are either alone or separated from their loved ones. That is why I wanted to have a special class on how to perform the Seder while we are in social isolation.

We went through the main parts of the Seder and learn how we are meant to celebrate the Seder this year.

TU B'SHVAT- COMING BACK TO LIFE

Celebrating Life

Tu or 15th of the month of Shevat is the new year - Rosh Hashanah of the trees, specifically the 7 species which the land of Israel were blessed with.

The Talmud says that there are 4 heads of the year; According to Beit Shamai, “The first of Nissan is the Rosh Hashnah for kings and Holidays, the first of Elul is Rosh Hashanah for tithing of animals, the first of Tishrei is the Rosh Hashanah of the lunar calendar year and the first of Shevat is the Rosh Hashanah for the trees.

In the opinion of Beit Hillel the Rosh Hashanah for the trees is on the 15th of Shevat” (Tractate Rosh Hashanah 2a). What is the inner significance of the 15th day of Shevat?

We celebrate the 15t of Shevat by eating 7 species of fruit (which 5 are fruits) that the land of Israel was blessed with: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranate, olives and dates. Why specifically these fruit? The verse says “for man is like the tree of the field” (Deuteronomy 21,19)....

Insights Into The Month Of Elul

cycle of the year Sep 03, 2019
 

Elul — A Month of Mercy and Forgiveness

 

Elul is called the "Month of Mercy" and "Month of Forgiveness" (Hodesh haRahamin vehaSelihot). It is a time for teshuvah(return) to God, to renew one's efforts in prayer, Torah study and charity, and to seek forgiveness for transgression, especially against one's fellows.

It is the belief in Jewish tradition that God does not forgive sins committed against another person unless one first endeavors to be reconciled with those wronged. During Elul, the last month before the Days of Awe, we become mindful of the great sin of the Golden Calf, enter into a spiritual and practical cleansing which will culminate with Yom Kippur.

Lulei – "Had I not trusted!..."

 

There is a further allusion to Elul found in Psalm 27

"Had I not trusted that I would see the goodness of God in the land of life…" (v. 13).

The Jewish scribal tradition has accentuated the word lulei (Had I not) by placing dots over the...

T”U B’shvat- Rosh Hashanah of the trees
