A Prayer for Tu b'Shevat

This year, Tu b'Shevat, new year of the trees, will fall on the evening of Feb. 2, and Feb. 3.

Blessings to the renewal of all living things. Blessings to the trees that provide us with clean air, shelter, food, and resources to live. Here’s to the dawning of spring and resurgence of life. Blessed be the earth — glorious in its creation and its creator.
