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
