Blessings on the Trees!

There are many blessings that we say every day, some more than others.
Here is a blessing that we only say once a year during the month of Nissan.
We bless two flowering trees, that will grow fruit.  Since this is a leap year,
it is best to say the blessing early in the month while the three still has flowers.

We have a very nice neighbor who has planted such trees, and they even
put up the blessing so everyone can come and do this mitzvah!

Clouds in Lifta Valley

This is the view that I woke up to this morning.  It makes Pesach Cleaning all worth it to live in such a beautiful city, Jerusalem!  Rachael Orbach
