Information for Tu B’Shevat

4 Shevat 5771
January 9, 2011

dried-fruit2Soon we will be marking another Tu B’Shevat, a day that has become synonymous with eating dried and fresh fruits as well as nuts, olives and other items.

I have loaded the appropriate pages (in Hebrew and English) from Rabbi Moshe Vaye’s book addressing a “Bug Free Tu B’Shevat”, updated this year, 5771. The rabbi has released these updates ahead of the New Year of Trees to permit us to become familiar with the current situation and act appropriately.

Anyone planning in any of the food items listed should familiarize him/herself with the information made available by Rabbi Vaye.
