Posted on
This video is class 10 of 27 in the series The Jewish Calendar.

In this shiur (Torah class), Rabbi Hershel Reichman discusses the holiday of Tu B’Shvat. From a Chassidic perspective, this class delves into the spiritual meaning and function of the day. Just as a tree, acts as a conduit between the rain-soaked earth and the blossoming fruit, Man’s purpose in this world is to use the word of G-d to galvanize himself to positive action. This class also discusses deep significance of each of the Seven Species that are unique to the Land of Israel.
