Tu Bishvat Center

The Tu Bishvat Center

The Jewish holiday Tu BiShvat occurs on January 25, 2016, the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat, and is also referred to as “Rosh HaShanah La’llanot” or the “New Year for Trees.” This is the time of year when the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. The Jewish people have long honored the special relationship we all enjoy with the land for many thousands of years. As such, Tu BiShvat is an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted in celebration, making it similar to Earth Day, which began in 1970 as a global campaign to protect the planet and launched the modern environmental movement.
