couponing in the holy land

Frugal food shopping for the Anglo Israeli

Real Zionists eat fresh fruit

I found this great advertisement today from the Plant Board- Moetzat Hatzemachim:

A loose translation:

Wait, why DO we eat dried fruits on Tu beshvat?

Eating dried fruits on Tu Beshevat is a tradition of the Jews in Exile, who wanted to taste the produce of the Land of Israel.  Since there was no refrigeration, they had to be satisfied with dried fruits.  Today, you have the opportunity to switch from dried fruits imported from other countries, and enjoy the abundance of fresh, healthy, praiseworthy fruit produced by the blue and white.  Happy Holidays!

I am changing my minhag- what about you?
