Storyboard Text

  • Hey Dad, I heard about Tu B'Shevat today in school. What's that?
  • Well, it's a Jewish holiday on the 15th day of the Hebrew month Shevet.
  • This year it was from sunset Jan. 30 to sunset Jan. 31.
  • Huh. That's interesting.
  • Yeah, but the date changes every year because the Christian and Hebrew calendars don't line up.
  • Well, the Torah, or the Hebrew Bible, told people to donate all their fruit every fourth year. The rabbis enforced this rule.
  • And I'm guessing that it's on that day because the name is actually the date, right?
  • Right. There weren't any historical figures that helped with the making of the holiday, but farmers had to deal with the trees.
  • Trees? What about trees? And didn't rabbis have something to do with it?
  • They did, actually. They had to make rules that fruit which blossomed before the 15th of Shevat was fruit of the previous year.
  • Why did they make a rule like that?
  • Interesting. Is work permitted during the celebration and observation?
