|Ask Rabbi Simmons|
there really Etz Chayim (Tree of Life) in Gan Eden (Garden of Eden)? Could you
also refer me to more resources about this subject?
Eitz Chaim is discussed in Genesis 2:9 and 3:22. The commentaries explain that eating from its fruit increased longevity (Ibn Ezra), or perhaps even offered immortality (Ramban).With blessings from Jerusalem,
