About Tu B'Shevat

Tu B'Shevat, traditionally known as the birthday of the trees, is a time to think about relating to the natural world. This holiday can be  celebrated by planting trees, eating fruits, and having a Tu B'Shevat Seder, a ritual that began with the kabbalistic masters of the 15th century.
