Ela Weissberger on Tu be-Shevat

Tu be-Shevat is called “New Year of the Trees” and is also known as Jewish Arbor Day. It is celebrated, especially in Israel, by planting trees and also marked by eating fruit on this day. Ela Weissberger remembers someone sneaked in a small plant of an oak tree into Theresienstadt (Terezin) and planted the tree in honor of the holiday.
