Executive Director’s Message

 

We will observe Tu B‟Shevat on Monday February 10th, the 15th of Shevat, also known as the New Year of the Trees.

 

Israel observes Tu B‟Shevat with a beautiful ancient custom. On this holiday a tree is planted for each child born during the year – a cedar for a boy, a cypress for a girl. When the tree matures and the child marries, branches from their tree are used for their chuppah. Trees in our tradition are closely associated with birth and marriage. Our Torah is called “itz Chayem”, a Tree of Life.

 

To observe this holiday enjoy fruits and nuts, or other Israeli products, you can also make a donation or purchase a tree from JNF (the Jewish National Fund).

 

It has been a time of many emotions. May our good memories help us to smile and may our year be healthy and productive.

 

Shalom
Mundy
