Family Tu B'Shvat Celebration and Art Workshop

Tu B'Shvat is known as the Jewish New Year for Trees or the Birthday of the Trees. It is a time to focus on caring about the environment and the natural world around us. We can care for the earth by reducing, reusing, and recycling. 

In this program, we will explore the holiday of Tu B'Shvat and bring the Jewish value of Ba'al Tashchit (not being wasteful) to life.  Grab your recyclables and reuse them to create beautiful art as a family.  We'll turn that “trash” into treasure by painting, building, and creating fabulous thing that enhance our Tu B'Shvat celebration! 

This program is designed for children and parents to participate together.
