As the almond trees start blooming in Israel, our thoughts turn to trees, the environment, and, this year, to Shemitah! Check out some new resources to enrich the Tu Bishvat experience for your learning community.
- Tu Bishvat On Sefaria is a collection of general Tu Bishvat information and grab-and-go activities that you can use in your classroom, congregation, or informal study space.
- GrowTorah's Core Lessons, and Hazon Shemitah Sourcebook are collections of sheets that can be used as-is or be adapted to suit your needs. They might even inspire you to create your own sheets or collection!
- Planning a Tu Bishvat seder? You can find great Tu Bishvat seders by Noam Zion and others in our collection of Tu Bishvat seders. You can use them as they are, or adapt them for your own community!
- Sefaria's new Community page is the place to find high quality sheets on relevant subjects. Each day you will find a selection of sheets related to the parasha, the calendar, and rabbinic literature. During the month of Shevat, we will be featuring Tu Bishvat sheets so check back often to see what is new.
This Tu Bishvat, learn more about Judaism and nature with our two Shemitah email journeys. Newly added, A Talmudic Journey through Shemitah leads you on a deep dive into some of the Talmud's discussions about Shemitah.
