The New Year For Trees
The 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar—celebrated this year on Monday, February 10, 2020—is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. Commonly known as Tu B'shvat, this day marks the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.
We mark the 15th of Shvat by eating fruit, particularly from the kinds that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. On this day we remember that “man is a tree of the field” ( Deuteronomy 20:19) , and reflect on the lessons we can derive from our botanical analogue.

Special Guest Rav Leibish Hundert of Yeshivat Simchat Shlomo will be leading our Friday night service: Feb 14
