granates. Many scholars stay
up late the previous evening,
reciting Biblical passages
dealing with fruits or the
earth's fertility. They read
from Genesis how trees were
created along with all the
plants of the earth; from
Leviticus the divine promise
of abundance as a reward for
keeping the commandments;
and from Exekiel 17, the
parable of the spreading vine,
symbolizing the people of
Israel.
Kabbalists hold a special
Seder and they celebrate, not
so much the New Year of
Trees, but the New Year of the
Tree . . . meaning the Tree of
Life, which is rich with
mystical connotations. They
drink four cups of wine, begin-
ning with white wine and en-
ding with red, with the sec-
ond cup a mixture more of
white and the third mmore of
red wine. It is rather like how
the landscape changes from
white (the pale narcissus and
crocus) to red (anemones and
tulips) as Tu b'Shevat ap-
proaches.
Tu b'Shevat is also the
popular day to go into the
fields and plant saplings.
Israeli schoolchildren in the
past few decades have helped
Keren Kayemet — the Jewish
National Fund — to plant 130
million trees, many of them
on Tu b'Shevat, and these
evergreens have become the
backbone of the reforestation
program.
Tu b'Shevat affirms the fact
that the soil of Israel is holy.
The People and the Land have
a mystic affinity in Judaism,
and the New Year of Trees
reminds us annually of the
wonder of God's creation.

Israel Reports
Lowest Inflation

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel's in-
flation rate for 1987 was 16.1
percent, the lowest figure in
15 years, the Central Bureau
of Statistics reported.
The figures were released
after the bureau reported
that the cost-of-living index
rose 1.3 percent in December.
The comparatively low
figure was welcomed by all
sectors of the economy —
though Finance Minister
Moshe Nissim said he would
only be happy when he
learned that 1.3 percent was
the annual, rather than the
monthly, figure.
Beginning this month, the
Central Bureau of Statistics
will be using a new "repre
sentational basket" as the
basis of its price comparisons.
