Halocho#502 - Tu B'Shvat is on Shabbat

This year Tu B'Shvat will be on Shabbat.

Tu B'Shvat - the 15th of the month of Shvat - is the New Year as far as tithing fruits is concerned.

Fruit from trees that blossomed before Tu B'Shvat belong to the previous year's Trumot & Ma'aser quota.

Fruit from trees that blossomed after Tu B'Shvat belong to the current year's Trumot & Ma'aser quota.

Since we do not say Tachanun on Tu B'Shvat, we will not say צדקתך צדק on Shabbat at Mincha.
