About Tu Bishvat

Tu Bishvat, also known as the "New Year for Trees," is a Jewish holiday that falls on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat. It is a minor holiday in the Jewish calendar and is not mentioned in the Torah (the Hebrew Bible).

Tu Bishvat is a time to celebrate and appreciate the natural world, specifically trees. It is customary to eat fruit, especially those that are native to the Land of Israel, such as figs, dates, pomegranates, and olives. Some Jews also plant trees or donate to organizations that support reforestation efforts.

In modern times, Tu Bishvat has become a day to focus on environmentalism and sustainability. Some Jews celebrate by participating in eco-friendly activities, such as composting, recycling, or reducing their carbon footprint.

There is no one specific way to celebrate Tu Bishvat, and the holiday is observed differently by different Jewish communities. Some people may choose to have a special meal or hold a ceremony, while others may simply reflect on the importance of the natural world and take steps to protect the environment.
