About Tu B’shvat:
Tu B’shvat gets its name from the date on which the holiday occurs, the 15th of the month of Shevat. A minor Jewish holiday, it is often referred to as the new year (or “birthday”) of the trees. The holiday originated in the Talmud, and was based on the date chosen for calculating the agricultural cycle of taking tithes from the produce of the trees, which were brought as first-fruit offerings to the Temple in Jerusalem.
Tu B’shevat has developed into an ecological holiday that reminds Jews of their connection to the earth and their role as caretakers of the environment. Many celebrate the holiday with a special feast of the seven species endemic to the Land of Israel including: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, dates.
