Tu Bishvat

Also known as the "New Year's Feast of the Trees," Tu Bishvat is celebrated in Jewish tradition on the 15th day of the month of Shevat, which marks the beginning of the tree blossoming season in Israel. Just as Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is considered a day of judgment for humans, Tu Bishvat is seen as a day of judgment for the growth of trees on Earth. Therefore, on this day, people around the world consume a variety of fruits, preferably from the seven species of fruits and grains mentioned in the Torah as being abundant in the land of Israel: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates.
