Selma Maisel Nursery School of Temple Sholom children, clockwise from lower left, James Gingold, Lola Castro, Eli Prawer, and Avery Gingold enjoyed making fruit kabobs to celebrate Tu B’Shevat, the Birthday of the Trees.

For Tu B’Shevat, the birthday of the trees, the children of Temple Sholom’s Selma Maisel Nursery School celebrated with a traditional seder of fruits and by creating art projects of trees.

Tu B’Shevat is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees.

It is the season when the earliest-blooming trees in Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.

The day is marked by eating fruit, particularly from the kinds that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates.
