Tree cheers at HAFTR


As Tu B’Shvat approached, HAFTR Early Childhood Pre-K students participated in a beautiful Tu B’Shvat seder, sampling olives, dates, figs, grapes, pomegranates, wheat crackers and different kinds of grape juice.

In the weeks leading up to the chag, the children learned first hand about the Shivat HaMinim and discussed the importance of trees as a resource for people, shelter for animals, and as a necessity to keep our planet strong. The holiday — often referred to as the “birthday of trees” — was celebrated Sunday night and Monday.
