Birthday of the Trees
Tu BiShvat or the “New Year of the Trees” is Jewish Arbor Day. The holiday is observed on
the 15th (tu) of the Hebrew month of Shvat. Scholars believe that originally Tu BiShvat was
an agricultural festival, marking the emergence of spring. In the 17th century, Kabbalists
created a ritual for Tu BiShvat that is similar to a Passover seder. Today, many Jews hold a
modern version of the Tu BiShvat seder each year. The holiday also has become a tree-planting
festival in Israel, in which Israelis and Jews around the world plant trees in honor
or in memory of loved ones and friends.
