Celebration for the New Year for Trees
Tu B'shevat was originally the beginning of the "legal year" for counting the fruit crop for tithes. The Talmud gives the reason that most of the early rains have fallen by this date. It may be thought of as corresponding to one of the earliest times at which sap would rise in the trees in ancient Israel.
Tu B'shevat anticipates the ultimate redemption, the return to the Garden of Eden. It anticipates the redemption of the whole world, when we will repair the mistake of Adam and eve, and eat, this time, fruit from the Tree of Life. In that day, the revelation of Godliness in all of Nature will be palpable. Everone will be a prophet and a mystic with direct experience of God, and all flesh will see the Unity of Hashem.
