The Palm Tree or Date Palm - From Perek Shira

     The date palm tree, Tamar in Hebrew, grows straight up to its leafy fronds without branching out to the side or having any knots in its trunk, and produces sweet nutritious fruit and cool shade. For this reason it is used to symbolize the righteous person who does not get sidetracked or detoured in the path to wisdom and good deeds. In its song, it shares its praise with the cedar tree, to teach us that the ideal of righteousness is to praise others when they, too, are deserving. It is no wonder then, that the names Tamar and Tamara for a girl or Tomer for a boy are given by parents in the prayer that their children will live up to this ideal.

The Date Palm says:
     "A righteous man will flourish like a date palm, like a cedar in the Lebanon he will grow tall."
     - Psalms 92:13

This photograph was taken in the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem, Israel.

Perek Shira is the song that is sung every day by God's creations, each creation having its own song. Please see this category's section page for more of an explanation.
