Happy Tu B’Shvat to those celebrating or not!
This epsiode takes a good look at Tu B’Shvat the holiday, tracing it from the Mishna to modern day. Along the way we discuss the halachot (Jewish Law) of produce, why Man likes tree metaphors so much, what the Tree of Knowledge actually was, means and ends (which justifies which?), Spinoza and Plato, and end off with a nice insight into the deeper meaning of the holiday.
Tzvi’s daughters make a guest appearance in the introduction.
