The 15th of Shvat is the Tu Bishvat holiday, a biblical New Year used as the birthday for determining the age of fruit trees as they relate to tithing expectations. Its celebration has been a journey from jubilation before the Lord and communal responsibility to planting parsley in Styrofoam cups in synagogues across America. How do we reclaim relevance to this holiday in the midst of a New England winter?
