or olives, have an inedible pit,
thus representing the realm of
Yezirah, formation, a higher
level of existence, still bearing
significant elements of the un-
holy. The third category are
fruits which have little or no
peel or pit, such as the carob,
which represents the upper-
most realms, which are tainted
only in the least by corruption.
The fourth category of fruit re-
present the ultimate level,
Azilut, the pure and absolute
realm of the Divine. Since this
is an intangible realm, no fruit
can represent it.
It remained for a later wave
of pioneers to carry out, physi-
cally, what these spiritual
pioneers were only able to
speculate about. With the re-
settlement of the Land of Israel
beginning at the turn of the
century, the festival of Tu
b'Shevat took on new signifi-
cance. Redemption was no
longer a matter of speculation
by dreamers, but an actuality
accomplished by physical ef-
fort in draining the swamps of
the Galilee, greening the des-
ert lands and rebuilding what
had been a backwater province
of a dying empire. It is with the
rise of modern Zionism that
there arose the very tangible
act of redemption of the Land:
the planting of trees, physi-
cally, in the Land of Israel and,
albeit at a distance, the par-
ticipation by Jews around the
world by donating funds speci-
fically for use in reclaiming the
Land of Israel.
This return to the Land has
forced the Jewish people to re-
examine what the great
classics of Jewish tradition
have to say, not only about
flora and fauna, but also how a
land can be intensively farmed
and built up, yet at the same
time,_enriched and conserved.
