Dry Bones cartoon: Kirschen, Dry Bones, trees, holiday, Jewish, Jewish culture, Tu B'Shvat, Tu BiShvat,
Today's cartoon is a golden oldie. I'm running it in response to requests from readers who suggest that I run it every year. What do you think? Tu BiShvat is the Jewish "New Year" of the trees. On Tu BiShvat we plant trees for future generations. Tu is the number 15 in the biblical numbering system (which uses the letters of the Hebrew Alphabet). Bi is Hebrew for "in". Shvat is the current month in the Hebrew calendar. So Tu BiShvat simply means the "15th of Shvat".
This year,Tu BiShvat starts on the evening of Tuesday January 30 2018, and ends on Wednesday evening January 31.
