How did Tu BiShvat become an Israeli holiday, a national tree-planting day rather than a date in religious agricultural law?  

And how have Israeli artistic views of working the land evolved over the generations?

A look at key artifacts and artworks from the Israel Museum collections sheds light on this transformation.

 

Presented by Romy Neumark

Directed and edited by Alon Levi
