    If you live in a neighborhood without dense tree canopy, you may want to celebrate Tu b’Shevat by joining with your neighbors to plant and establish a forest of tall trees around your homes. Sound like too ambitious an undertaking? It will be well worth it.

    Tu b’Shevat, the...

    1. No predictions.

    Back in 2007, I wrote a short post explaining why readers should never trust my predictions (if they ever did). The occasion was similar: Rosh Hashanah eve. And going back to my predictions from 12 months ago, I discovered that as predictions go, I got some...
