The Blessing over the Trees on Itamar

In this month the Hebrew month of Nissan, it is our custom to bless over the fruit trees where we praise Hashem “for creating a world that lacks nothing bearing good creations and good trees for the enjoyment of mankind”. This is a blessing that we bless once a year while observing fruit trees in blossom. We celebrate the joy of rebirth, growth and germination as the sunlight increases and buds appear everywhere- on the flowers, on the trees. This paves the way for our Passover holiday – the holiday of redemption. Amen
