Year-Round Tree of Life
Last updated December 08, 2006
We'll be frank; we came up with the Tree of Life idea when our oldest daughter would not cease sighing woefully every time she saw a Christmas Tree, which was decidedly missing from our Jewish home. But more than a mere December gimmick, we decided our Tree of Life will stand tall and proud all year long, decorated for the gamut of Jewish holidays as well as family occasions, national holidays, and other important events.
Any tree can be a Tree of Life, though we recommend something that is suitable as an attractive household plant even when its unadorned. A ficus, real or artificial, is probably the most common tree available.
To decorate your Tree of Life, your imagination is the limit. Some suggestions:
