Tu Bishvat


Tu Bishvat and some of the other smaller holidays — Sukkot, Shavuot, Purim — can be great ways to introduce Jewish partners to the beauty of Judaism. Every winter, just as we start to think about spring, a minor holiday comes along. Minor enough that not all of us know what it means or how it came to be. The resources on this page can help you and your family learn about the wonder of Tu Bishvat.
