Eyes: Symbol of Tammuz

Tammuz is another one of those months with no holidays, except for a minor fast, and no real practices associated with it.  At least not any I’ve found.  This makes a lot of sense when you think of the Jewish wheel of the year in relationship to agrarian cycles.  The summer months are when there is too much work to be done in the fields sowing, tilling, planting and harvesting.   Even though there isn’t a specific practice that we can associate with Tammuz, there is a theme.  It’s vision and eye sight.  Tammuz is a month that challenges us to really see what’s in front of us and focus.
