TU BISHEVAT 2021 LIVE Zoom Meeting

Fruits get the "Ha-etz" (讛指注值抓) blessing. In Jewish law, a fruit is defined as something growing from a perennial tree that does not renew its stem and does not grow too close to the ground. Thus, apples, grapes, nuts (except peanuts) and figs are fruit, but strawberries, watermelon and bananas are not.


Here's the blessing:


讘旨指专讜旨讱职 讗址转旨指讛 讬职鈥懽欀 讗直鈥懽溨棺斨底欁犠曋 诪侄诇侄讱职 讛指注讜止诇指诐 讘旨讜止专值讗 驻旨职专执讬 讛指注值抓


Baruch atah A-donay, Elo-heinu Melech Ha鈥橭lam borei pri ha-aitz.

Blessed are You, L-rd our G鈥慸, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the tree.



Wine has special significance and uses in Jewish law, so it gets its own blessing. Make this blessing when drinking wine or grape juice:


讘旨指专讜旨讱职 讗址转旨指讛 讬职鈥懽欀 讗直鈥懽溨棺斨底欁犠曋 诪侄诇侄讱职 讛指注讜止诇指诐 讘旨讜止专值讗 驻旨职专执讬 讛址讙旨指驻侄谉


Baruch atah A-donay, Elo-heinu Melech Ha鈥橭lam borei pri hagafen.

Blessed are You, L-rd our G鈥慸, King of the universe, Who creates the fruit of the vine.
