Happy Tu B’Shevat
Make these colourful cards to celebrate Tu B’Shevat – the Jewish New Year of the Trees Festival on 9th February 2020 and learn about this special event in the Jewish calendar.
It’s always on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat and marks the season in which the earliest blooming trees in Israel come out of their winter sleep and start to bear fruit again. In modern Israel, this festival is also celebrated as an ecological awareness day and trees are often planted in celebration.
The seven main foods associated with Tu B’Shevat are: wheat, figs, dates, grapes, pomegranates, olives and barley. Perhaps you can introduce some of these foods to your kids at this time?
