radio613 celebrates the New Year of the Trees! The collective highlights Tu Bishvat’s call for spiritual revival through a deeper connection with the natural environment. The agrarian, Tanachic, and Kabbalistic origins and interpretations of the holiday are discussed in the current context of industrialization and environmental destruction. A reading from Wisdom of the Jewish Mystics, a trip with “The Nice Jewish Time Traveller”, an “uprooting” of Tu Bishvat’s co-optation by the JNF. And more!
Music from Joni Mitchell and Aloe Blacc.
