Elementary Students Celebrate Tu BiShvat
Tu BiShvat, the Jewish new year of the trees, is an opportunity to celebrate the many ways that trees provide for us. One way that second through fourth graders honored the holiday this year was by donating money to the Jewish National Fund to plant trees in Israel. As a visual representation of their efforts, RSS created a tree that "grew leaves" as students made their donations. This growth was shared during tefilah each week as part of preparation and celebration of Tu BiShvat.
