About Tu B'Shevat: Fruit trees were given special status in the Torah because of their importance in sustaining life and as a symbol of God's divine favor. "Only trees that you know will not yield food may be destroyed (Deuteronomy 19-20). Leviticus 19-23 states that the farmer can only eat fruit of a tree in the 5th and subsequent years of a tree's life. Since the date a tree was planted was often unknown, the rabbis established the 15th of Shevat as a New Year of all trees. Today, Tu B'Shevat has become a symbol of both Zionist attachment to the Land of Israel as well as an example of Jewish sensitivity to the environment. Tu B'Shevat is an ancient and authentic Jewish "Earth Day" that educates Jews about the Jewish advocacy of responsible stewardship of God's creation. This year, we celebrate Tu B'Shevat beginning the evening of Wednesday, January 27 and Thursday, January 28. Tu B'Shevat is celebrated by eating fruits native to Israel, planting trees, and environmental education.
