Tu B'Shvat (pronounced Too Bish-VAHT) is the Jewish New Year of the Trees.  According to the Talmud, the fifteenth of the Hebrew month of Shevat (Tu in Hebrew means “fifteen”) is the day designated as the end of the period in which most of Israel’s yearly rain has fallen. It also marks the time when trees have used up water from the previous year’s rainfall and have begun absorbing the water of the New Year. On Tu B’Shvat, by honoring the cycle of our trees, we sanctify the power of nature, our most precious resource.
