Tu Bishvat

January 24 - January 25

what is Tu Bishvat


During the Hebrew month of Shvat, just as the early blooms start to appear on trees in Israel, we celebrate Tu Bishvat a Jewish holiday that commemorates the birthday of trees. Also called Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot, which literally means “New Year of the Trees”, the festival is a welcome reminder that winter is soon over.

The most common way to celebrate Tu Bishvat is by eating a special meal featuring fruits and nuts native to Israel, such as figs, dates, olives, and pomegranates. Planting trees is another traditional way to enjoy the holiday.
