Tu BiShvat is a minor festival that takes place on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shvat, with the name itself referring to the date. It originates in the Mishnah (the first part of the Talmud, also known as the Oral Torah) and was an agricultural holiday in the Biblical Land of Israel.
Many communities celebrate it today by honoring the Earth, planting trees, and eating the Seven Species of Israel (wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates) along with other fruits and nuts.
In Israel, Tu BiShvat is commonly a day for planting trees and celebrating nature.
And this year we’re helping our customers plant their own trees in Israel from afar! For every purchase of $120 and up on our site through February 7, we will donate to the Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) to have a tree planted in your name in one of Israel’s forests.
So celebrate Tu BiShvat and help plant Israel's forests by shopping on our site today!
