Happy Tu B'Shvat! Fruit & More

Welcome to the Tu B'shvat edition at Jewish Blogmeister. Tu B'shvat being the New Year for Trees and there is a tradition to eat unique fruits and preferably ones that have not been eaten the whole year so that one may recite the Shechiyanu blessing on the fruit. Without question the worst fruit you could probably eat is bokser aka carob. The yeshivas are known for giving these out and I'm still getting over that terrible chapter in my life. Click here for some insights on the meaning behind this holiday.
