Educational and Fun Resources for Tu B'Shvat


Hi Everyone!

Tu B'Shvat, the New Year for Trees, falls on the 15th of the

Hebrew month of Shvat, Monday - February 6 this year - 5783 / 2023.

This Jewish mini-holiday is of major importance to our

appreciation of nature and our relationship to it.

It is customary to plant trees and partake of the fruits of

the land of Israel to mark the occasion. 

Many people in Israel and all over the world will participate in 

eating fruits at a Tu B'shvat Seder.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz: Tu B'Shvat


Which fruit is used to make wine ?

When did Kabbalists originate the Tu B'shvat Seder ?

How many glasses of wine are drunk at the Tu B'Shvat seder ?

What branch of a tree did the dove bring back after the flood ?

How many days does the Hebrew month of Shvat have ?

What is associated with both Chanukah and Tu B'Shvat ?

In Israel, what happens to trees starting on the 15th of Shvat ?

Since 1901, how many trees has the Jewish National Fund

planted in Israel ?

According to the Torah, which fruits did the spies bring to the

children of Israel in the wilderness ?

The above questions are examples from the multiple choice

quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings.

Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.
