This was written by a kind hearted, Catholic writer, photographer and blogger lady, who likes learning about other cultures. I believe that the more a person learns about other religions, customs and languages, the more beautiful the world becomes. The reason being is, you develop a birds eye view for the people and a better understanding of what they went through as a people, and why their traditions have been kept alive and help unify them, making them stronger.
I found this really interesting and helps me understand why my many Jewish friends do what they do.
You see, we all don’t have to believe the same things. We only need to understand and respect why others believe and do what they do.
I found that Tu refers to “15” on the Jewish Calendar and Sheva is the name of the month.
I am not sure if it’s appropriate to say to all of my Jewish readers, I hope your Tu B’Shevat is a Joyous one. Be blessed. I think those two words are appropriate in any faith.
I will say Shalom and Peace be with you.
