Tu B'Shevat for the year 2016 is celebrated/ observed on sundown of Saturday, January 23rd ending at sundown on Monday, January 25th.


Tu B'Shevat in the Hebrew calendar falls on the 15th day of the month of Shevat. This day celebrates the "New Year for the Trees" and their importance in the Jewish Society. Much like Arbor Day, this day is about trees and planting them to make the land more healthy and vibrant.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
