The 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. Commonly known as Tu Bishvat, this day marks the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.
We mark the 15th of Shevat by eating fruit, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. This day celebrates nature and our role in helping it thrive!
