Shalom Children of G-d!
Welcome back to Marie Speaks G-d’s Grace Bible Study.
This week’s Jewish terminology word is: hadas which leads us to arba minim so wonderful two for one action!
So for today’s word which my personally owned The JPS Dictionary of Jewish Words by Joyce Eisenberg and Ellen Scolnic 2001 copyright 1st edition defines this weeks Jewish Terminology Word as a Hebrew noun pronounced (hah-DASS). This is a branch of a myrtle bush that is part of the lulav used on Sukkot.
Now, I have no green thumb. I know not much about plants in general, besides I should be nice to them. hahahaha!
Often when I dream about my Spanish Style villa.. I decided I want lots of fruit trees and an herb garden and instead of just huge traditional adobe wall border; I think I also want a living fence. What is a living fence? Well, I want to have about the border of my land large bushes that are usually and add to the land. For example, I want rosemary, sage, thyme, and now that I know more bush that are hadas.
The only issue is it of course the learning process. I would have to learn how to care and where to plant and when to plant all the different types of brushes. I think it would be fun to finally set things up and when after 4 years when the garden has finally settled and I can make use of the fruit tress, herb garden, and brushes…..oh the wonderful teas and home remedies and pies I could make!
I love the idea!
We will also look at the definition of arba minim which is a Hebrew plural noun pronounced (ar-BAH mee NEEM) This word literally means “four spiecies”. The name fo r the three parts of the lulav and the etrog, which are used to fulfill the commandments to “rejoice before the Lord” during Sukkot.
On Sukkot, both in synagogue and in the sukkah, it is traditional to hold the lulav in the right hand and the etrog in the left, and then to shake the lulav while reciting a blessing. The lulav is composed of the three kinds of plants: lulav (palm), the hadas (myrtle) and the aravot (willow). They are said to correspond to the human body: the long, strong palm is the backbone; myrtle leaves are round like eyes; willow leaves are oval like a mouth, and the etrog symbolizes the heat. When Jews wave the lulav and hold the etrog, they are praying with all parts of their body, with all of their senses.
The LEGO Sukkot Movie: Jewish Holidays 101 is a fun children’s video which explains the holiday of Sukkot.
Here is a video from Torah.live which I absolutely love! I actually subscribe to Torah.live and use the programs for our homeschooling. The kids love, love, love the videos and these video times I don’t limit the time amount of which they are allow to watch.
The videos in my humble opinion are fun, educational (even for adults), and add to any Orthodox Jewish learning for the home. I have hyper linked the website and youtube channel for others to enjoy. I encourage others to check Torah live out especially if they have a homeschooling program or going threw conversion classes. In my personal experience the videos have help explained some many halachos that I was confused about in a simple and plain manner to which I was able to break down and understand and then apply to my life. What a wonderful gift!
Wasn’t that so much fun!
I love learning and growing in our faith!
