Tu B'Shevat For Kids

Tu B’Shevat is considered the New Year of the Trees, and marks the start of spring in Israel, when trees begin to bloom after a long, cold winter.

Today, many people mark this holiday by planting saplings and participating in a meal that evokes the Pesach seder, where fruits, nuts, and wine or grape juice are on the menu. Besides the seder, many families spend Tu B'Shevat planting a tree, working in a garden, eating special fruit, or doing something else to show some love for trees and the earth.

Tu B'Shevat will begin in the evening on Wednesday, 24 January 2024 and end in the evening on Thursday, 25 January 2024.
