Tu Bishvat (Tu B’Shevat) in on Wednesday February 4, 2015, even though many will start celebrating it in the evening of Tuesday, February 3.
Tu Bishvat is all set around the 15th day of the Jewish months of Shevat; people would say it is similar to that of Arbor Day. It is a festival known as the “New Year for Trees”, which is very well known in the Jewish communities in countries such as America.
Jewish communities in USA would watch the festival by eating fruit on February 4th; fruits that are consumed would include dates, grapes, pomegranates, figs and olives.
New fruits are always tried on Tu B’Shevat day; Jewish communities would also plant trees as well on this Jewish holiday.
