1 Shevat 5779 — Welcoming the Month of Shevat

May this new month of Shevat come upon us and all beings for goodness, joy, love and well-being.

May this month enhance our awe and appreciation for the wonders of the natural world and inspire our actions on the earth’s behalf.

The Infinite calls—

The heavens belong to the Mystery,

But the earth is given to humankind.

Not giving thanks deadens the body.

A lack of awareness silences the spirit.

Let us recognize and praise the Unfolding of creation in every moment.


—Psalm 115
