Tu B’shevat around DC: 5772!

Graphic courtesy of free-clipart-pictures.net

Tu B’shevat,sometimes referred to as “the Jewish arbor day,” was a tithing holiday in ancient Israel and a way to count the seasons. It was never, however, without environmental impact; the Talmudic rabbis revered the trees of the land and dedicated this “birthday” for protecting fruit trees. By the medieval ages the Kabbalists added a special seder, modeled after Passover, and today advocacy has taken a strong foothold with planting and teaching about sustainability.

The DC Jewish community has several options for celebrants. Take a look below, and be sure to enjoy the fruits of this holiday! 😛 The official dates this year are from Feb. 7 to Feb. 8.
