"Myrtle", hadas, הֲדַס in Hebrew, is a flowering tree native to Israel. The Hebrew letters are:
Hey - "behold; reveal",
Dalet - "pathway to enter", and
Samech - "to support".
We feel this is a beautiful representation of our ministry goals. Myrtle is a symbol of peace and joy, is one of the four plants used to build a sukkah during the Feast of Tabernacles, and the blooms have a sweet fragrance that has been used for millennia to craft perfume. It is also a root form of Queen Esther's Hebrew name, Hadassah, הֲדַסָּה , which also means myrtle.
