Young scholars at Temple B'nai Abraham’s Early School marked the Jewish New Year of the Trees with a Tu B’Shvat seder.
The children celebrated the traditions of TuB’Shvat, including eating an array of fruits that come from trees as well as drinking four cups of a variety of grape juice representing the four seasons of the year.
They talked about how important trees are to them and the environment. They shared trees provide us with shade, shelter, fuel, food, oxygen, beauty, and many other blessings, concluding that trees indeed deserve their moment of honor.
Shown enjoying the fruits of the Tu B’Shvat seder table are Early School students Jake Warter and Harlee Nelson.
