Trees, Earth, and Torah is the first extensive collection of Jewish resources for observing the increasingly popular late-winter holiday of Tu B'Shvat, the Jewish "New Year of the Tree." This anthology draws from biblical, rabbinical, medieval, and modern sources that address the significance and historical development of the holiday, offers several examples of a "Seder Tu B'Shvat," and includes mystical writings along with Zionist and Eco-Jewish pieces.
