Tu Bishvat and Shmita

undefined

Rabbi Ari Shvat

Shevat 3, 5775
Question
What is the most appropriate way to celebrate Tu Bishvat during a Shmita year in Israel?
Answer
Tree-planting is obviously not allowed this year, so it would be appropriate to utilize Tu B'Shvat during the shmitta year to learn about shmitta, her ideas, laws, and ideals, and deal with the question, "why" we aren't planting this year?
