Tu Bishvat: the greening of Judaism


Tu Bishvat
Available in on-screen reading friendly (PDF) and printer-friendly, downloadable (PDF) versions.
For more booklets, visit our Booklets for People in Interfaith Relationships page.

This beautiful booklet tells the historical roots of Tu Bishvat and Judaism's long-standing sacred connection to trees.

You will also find suggestions for activities for young children and ideas for hosting a Tu Bishvat seder.

It is a great handout for preschool and elementary school children to take home and can be the basis for a class or used by a taskforce that wants to add a Tu Bishvat seder to the synagogue or school calendar. Please add it to your regular schedule of holiday booklets at your school, synagogue or agency.

Reform synagogues are often called "temple." Hebrew for "order," refers to the traditional course of events, or service, surrounding the Passover and Tu Bishvat meals.
