Welcome to our Tu B'Shevat section on iChild!
This Jewish Festival is celebrated on 22nd January 2021 and on 16th January 2022.
This is a festival celebrating the birthday of trees. By tradition no fruits could be picked or eaten during the first three years of a tree’s life and by celebrating Tu B’Shevat, farmers were able to keep track of the ages of their trees. The day is marked by ceremonial planting of trees, and more recently has become a day of ecological awareness.
