Many families have a Tu B’Shevat seder, or ceremonial meal. Just as at a Passover seder, symbolic foods are eaten in a special order in celebration of the important role trees play in our life. It’s traditional to eat Israeli fruits, such as figs, dates, and carobs. It’s also customary to eat fruits you haven’t tasted before, and to say Shehecheyanu (a blessing of gratitude when experiencing something new).
Our special Tu B'Shevat is perfect to do with younger kids or to try out as your first family Tu B’Shevat celebration. You’ll have the opportunity to taste and smell new foods, ask questions, and say blessings together.
