Tu B’shevat is the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat, which celebrates the New Year of trees. On this day, it is customary to eat from the fruits synonymous with the biblical passage describing the bounty of the land of Israel. The seven species for which the land of Israel is known for are olive, dates, grapes, figs, pomegranates, wheat and barley.

This year I will be hosting a Tu B’Shevat party, and will be sending home these adorable little baskets, packed with grapes, figs and dates for each guest to take home. I love how the baskets and fruit take on this rustic, almost ancient look, matching the green foliage tag to compliment the entire package.

This Jewish holiday is a great opportunity to reflect on the verse that “A man is (compared to) a tree in the field,” which symbolizes the idea that if we build strong roots in our lives, then just like a tree with strong roots can withstand the ‘storms’ and the challenges of nature, so too, with values and ethics, we can remain strong and steadfast in our commitment to facing the challenges in our life.
