Tu Bishvat the 15th of Shevat is the Jewish New Year for the trees.
This is the season in which the trees‚ especially the almond tree starts blooming in the Land of Israel marking the emerging from the winter sleep and the beginning of a new fruit-bearing cycle. Nowadays this date is also a time to reflect about our relation to nature and the world around us moved by the verse from Deuteronomy 20:19 that remind us that man is a tree of the field.
Tu Bishvat is the time to have a special Seder with all kinds of fruits associated with Eretz Yisrael. With this Seder we mark the day of Tu B'Shevat by eating fruits especially those that originate from the seven species mentioned by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes‚ figs‚ pomegranates‚ olives and dates.
Serve them on our special Tu Bishvat glass and ceramic plates and find gifts that reflect the spirit of this holiday. Everything bearing the image of the seven species will make an appropriate gift for Tu Bishvat.
