Guide To A Bug-Free Tu B’Shevat

tu bshvatGUIDE: [download & print] is a minor Jewish holiday, usually occurring in late January or early February, that marks the “New Year of the Trees” (Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot‎). Tu Bishvat is one of four “New Years” mentioned in the Mishnah. Customs include planting trees and eating dried fruits and nuts, especially figs, dates, raisins, carob, and almonds. In Israel, the flowering of the almond tree, which grows wild around the country, coincides with Tu Bishvat.

Tu Bishvat is celebrated on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Shevat.

Being that it’s a Minhag to eat fruits which require a Shechiyanu, TLS is including a guide, provided by Pos’tiv. Pos’tiv Produce has come to be known as a standard for Kashrus and integrity. Their state-of-the-art growing techniques, greenhouses and washing equipment, allow for a fully contained and controlled system enabling the production of guaranteed Kosher product. Expert Mashgichim meticulously check their product through every necessary stage of the growth process and again before and after the washing process, every single bin is checked.

The entire Pos’tiv process is under the strict supervision and guidance of the world-renowned expert on insect infestation Rabbi Moshe Vaye of Jerusalem, along with the Orthodox Union, Reb Shia Katz and Rav Usher Eckstein.
Wishing you a happy, Kosher and bug-free Tu B’Shevat. (Photo-Oh Nuts).
