Happy New Year (to the Trees!)

Happy New Year, Trees!

In a few days, we'll celebrate Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish celebration of trees. The holiday, considered the "New Year" for trees, starts at sundown on January 30, 2018.

Tu B'Shevat comes from a biblical law that says you can't eat fruits from a tree planted less than three years ago. They count years from 15th of the Hebrew month of Shevat. ("Tu" is the name ancient Jews gave to the 15th of each month, Shevat is one of the months, hence "Tu B'Shevat").

In honor of Tu B'Shevat, take 18% off your entire order on January 30 and January 31, 2018! Just enter Trees2018 when you check out.

Go Plant a Tree

Many people plant trees on Tu B'Shevat. That's a lot of work!

Fortunately, the Jewish National Fund makes it easy -- for $18 you can buy one, and they'll plant it in Israel for you. Learn more: Plant a Tree in Israel
