Something very special when the 85th Birthday of MLK,Jr. falls close to the Jewish New Year for Trees: to weed out hate and sow the seeds of peace. For the tree of the field is man.

All we did was plant a tree & eat figs!
I was brought up in a Torah true atmosphere & still never learned anything interesting about Tu B'shvat until I read the Aish articles. Thank you Aish for making this holiday real & relevant!
