The New Year of the Trees – rosh hashanah la'ilanot (ראש השנה לאילנות) is a special day on the Jewish calendar more commonly called - Tu BiShvat. The Bible is filled with agriculture, yet many of us today are city dwellers, and we feel distant and disconnected from these land and harvest-tied messages.  We are probably missing many blessings in our lives because we are less connected to the land these days. That is why, perhaps, the spirituality behind agriculture in the Bible deserves to be deliberately preserved, and days like Tu BiShvat help us accomplish that.

This is a shiur, a recording of short interactive teaching (broken up into 3 segments, about 40 minutes long in total) that explains the spirituality of the New Year of the Trees. More like this HERE
