Post-Snow Sh'vat, But Winter's Not Over

In the Jewish world it's another month already, Shvat or Shevat or Sh'vat שבט.  We're in the heart of winter but it's the time of the year when we can already see the signs of spring.  In less than two weeks it's the Holiday of TU B'Shvat, the 15th of Shvat when the early fruit trees begin to bloom.

After over forty years here in Israel, I wouldn't quite put away my snow equipment, since we have had snow on Purim, which is over a month from now.

Here are some pictures from my walk to the Tel Shiloh on Rosh Chodesh Shvat.  I ended up going alone, but it was very nice and there were other people there for an event.  Before I show you the pictures, please mark Rosh Chodesh Adar in your calendar, ladies.  G-d willing we'll have a large group to pray at Tel Shiloh then.
