Tu B'Shvat


Occurs on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Shvat, usually in late January or early February


Tu B'Shvat, the "New Year of the Trees", is the Jewish version of Arbor Day and marks the emergence of spring in Israel. Some hold a "Tu B'Shvat seder" meal similar to a Passover seder to celebrate, while others plant trees, often in honor or memory of loved ones. Fruit and nuts are traditionally eaten, especially the seven species associated with Israel: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. Almonds and carob are also popular.
