Tu BiShvat is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the “New Year of the Trees” (also known as “Jewish Arbor Day”). It is celebrated – especially in Israel – by planting trees and eating fruit. In 2023, Tu BiShvat occurs on February 5-6.

In her USC Shoah Foundation testimony, Holocaust survivor Ela Weissberger recalls a fellow Theresienstadt (Terezin) concentration camp prisoner smuggling in and planting a small oak tree plant, in honor of the holiday.
