Photo by Elisheva DananTu Bishvat, the Jewish New Year of the Tree, arrives this year on Tuesday evening, January 30-Wednesday, January 31. Visit Wellsprings’ Gateway of Trees for Pathways (posts) with teachings and resources including music, nature sights and sounds, ancient stories, videos, and a guided meditation for eating fruit. Learn about rainforests and the importance of planting trees in Jewish tradition.

I’ve updated the post about Tu Bishvat with links to online and print materials and resources like free haggadot for a Tu Bishvat Seder. And don’t miss my personal story of the day that I hugged a tree while on retreat.
