Limud for 15 Shevat

The 15 she'wat Limud is based on the short version of פרי עץ הדר, printed in 1974. The original version was composed by Raphael Montezinos and printed in Amsterdam in 1859. A scanned version similar to the original version can be found at http://www.hebrewbooks.org/52643. A pdf version of the original was made by Mr. Shimon Cardozo in 5780 (2020), Lakewood NJ, which can be downloaded.

The general structure was not used in the old version but it has been added in 1974. Read more on this on the introduction to the Limud page. In the 1974 version mishanyot are not has specified.

פרי עץ הדר, editions 1859 and 1974 (top right) and the traditional pastry, made from the five types of grain. Download a 2020 pdf version of the 1859 full version, and a scan of the 1974 abbreviated version. A reprint can be downloaed.

This list (in Dutch) shows which fruits are currently used and also has the recipe of the pancakes and of the "pleverkouk" or "plevekoek" pastry, see above picture. It seems that the plevekoek recipe came from Spain. The list has 15 fruits, the number corresponding to15 Shevat. The 1859 edition of פרי עץ הדר counts 20 fruits plus white and red wine.
