And in the seventh year...LISTEN

Shmita calls for a break from our daily rounds and lets us turn our attention to our surroundings – to our community, to those around us and to nature.


Listen to what’s happening now in the garden. The murmur of the wind — can you hear it rustling the leaves?

The chirping of the birds — can you tell the difference between their songs?

The visitors in the garden — can you hear them? Are they nearby or far away?

There are fountains throughout the Gardens where you can hear the sound of rippling water. But here in the Palm Garden, it is the breeze whishing through the fronds that brings you the sound of nature.
