Tu B'Shevat For Kids

Tu B’Shevat is considered the New Year of the Trees, when almond trees begin to bloom in Israel.

Today, many people mark this holiday by planting saplings and participating in a meal that evokes the Passover 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 begins at sundown on Wednesday, January 24, 2024 and ends in the evening on Thursday, January 25, 2024.
