About the Event

Did you know that Tu Bishvat was celebrated in Mesopotamia around 3,800 years ago? Yes, it was an agricultural festival related to the new moon, and the setting of the calendar.  But how does this relate to our Tu Bishvat holiday for trees? Humans and trees, in general, are seen as the kings of their realms: Humanity are the kings of the animal world, and the trees are the kings of the plant world. Flora and Fauna. How are these two interrelated in Jewish thought?

  • To join the physical version of this tour in the Israel Museum - check out the event calendar at this link. FYI the equivalent physical tour would be "A Winter's Tale" in the Bible Lands Museum, which is not the same as the virtual tour "A Winter's Tale".
