Four Blessings for Tu B'Shevat

  1. Trees give us air to breathe, helping to sustain life. So, too, may you have a long, happy, healthy life. May you have space to breathe and may you breathe life into others by your example.

  2. Trees have roots that go deep into the ground and connect not only with the earth but with other trees. So, too, may you always know the joy of family, close friends, and a community to keep you company throughout your life. May you always be surrounded by people who love you and keep you connected.

  3. Tree trunks hold steady through harsh conditions. So, too, may you be held steady through life’s inevitable bumps. 

  4. The leaves of trees know when to hold on and when to let go. Called by the voice of nature itself, they follow a rhythm of their own. So, too, may you hear the still, small voice within you, and may it inspire you to a life of goodness in harmony with the world around you.
