From The Rabbi's Desk

The New Year of the Trees is named for the 15th day of the month of Shevat - T'u B'shvat. The first almond blossoms have opened and the sap in the trees is beginning to rise in the Middle East as we in the Northeastern part of the United States brave the frosty winter.
It is customary to eat fruits from Israel on T'u B'Shvat: oranges, apples, figs, dates, grapes, peaches, plums, olives, pomegranates, etc. It's also traditional to eat fruits you haven't tasted in a long time - (at least 30 days) and to say the Shehecheyanu: Praised are You, Adonai, our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who has granted us life, sustained us and enabled us to reach this occasion.
Recently, T'u B'shvat has become the Jewish equivalent to Earth Day. It is thought of as an opportunity to assert our passion for Jewish continuity through environmental protection. Increasingly, Jews are part of a growing social movement behind ecological preservation, which is a very Jewish issue. The depth of Jewish values, sacred text and community all direct us toward caring for Creation. Acknowledgement of the on-going miracle of Creation is one of the three core values of Jewish prayer. (The other two being Revelation and Redemption.)
