Tu B'Shevat

Tu B'Shevat the " New Year of Trees" on the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar, This is the season in which earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.

Legally, the "New Year for Trees" relates to the various tithes that must be separated from produce grown in the Holy Land. These tithes differ from year to year in the seven-year Shemittah cycle; the point at which a budding fruit is considered to belong to the next year of the cycle is the 15th of Shevat.

On Tu B'Shevat we eat fruits, particularly from the "Seven Kinds" that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates.
