Fig Tree at Mount Sinai

© Joy Krauthammer

My 32 year old divine magnificent Mission Fig tree at sunrise,
two days before cutting down the entire top of right trunk.
This devoted fig tree must have been at Revelation. 
Understand, feel its holy Essence, its power, loving soul and Source. 
I am trying to save beloved tree from uprooting,
 thus I decided I must take down its whole entire top which will be heavy in the summer. 
Today I stood at its base and I was strong.
Its body and beauty was felled.

I am giving tomorrow on Shabbat at shul to chevre, a tree that was at Sinai.
Now again to honor Tu B'Shvat, Fig tree gives its present to the future.
Dozens of beautiful foot-long, straight and thick barren branches to Lev Eisha women to plant, nurture and grow Fig trees.
I breathe deeply in great sadness and shock of horror at removal of limbs. 
I had to choose longer healthier life for fig tree.
