​These days we are celebrating “Tu B’Shevat”; a Jewish Holiday referring to the “New Year of the Trees”.

It is a Holiday at which it is customary to eat from the variety of the fruit of the land; as blessed by God.

The holiday derives from Bible origins.

As of the establishment of the state of Israel, it has been a habit to plant trees, during the Holiday.

It is also a habit to eat dried fruit.

May you have a happy year of the trees!
