|Resource Description (500 characters max)
Tu B’shevat, meaning the 15th of Shevat, marks the new year of Israel’s trees and, this year, begins on the eve of Wednesday, January 15. By the middle of the Hebrew month of Shevat, the rains that began during Sukkot have absorbed into the soil and we see new growth in the form of fruits. It is a Jewish custom to eat more fruits than usual in an effort to give thanks to G-d for all forms of fruits created.
