Design and harmony

Nov 11, 2019

To the editor:
I just read Jewish Culture column by Moshe Unger. I enjoyed his explanation of the design and harmony of the world. He said, “as we are in the season of Fall, the landscape gives us ample thoughts to contemplate.” It is just nature, so in my mind, who thinks about it?
But...he put it in simple terms: “at this point in the year, the trees don't need leaves anymore because they are not producing fruit, so they fall and become fertilizer for the seeds the trees dropped during summer.” Every type of fruit and plant has its distinct design to attract pollinators”.
He went on to summarize the Lord's plan, and I found it very well thought out by you, Moshe.
