To coincide with Tu B’Shvat, which falls this year on Jan. 16-17, the Rodef Shalom Biblical Botanical Garden has announced plans for this summer’s special exhibit, “The Healing Garden.”

The exhibit, which opens June 1, will focus on the multiple meanings of healing, from the spiritual comfort the Garden brings to visitors to the medicinal qualities of plants mentioned in the Torah (the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament), the Quran (Koran), and the New Testament,” according to a press release. “These passages remind us that we, as adherents of the Abrahamic religions, are more alike than we are different.”

The 2022 summer season will feature a variety of special events to highlight the healing power of plants. PJC
