15 Shvat – Tu BiShevat, Rosh haShanah (”Head of the Year”) for Fruit Trees

by R24 App


15th of Shevat marks the date for calculating the beginning of the agricultural cycle for the purpose of tithes. It coincides with the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep.

Tu bi-Shvat is a great occasion to serve the table with fresh and dried fruits. Particularly – from the “Seven Kinds” that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Land of Israel.
