Despite Storm Ciara, we made it to KLS to celebrate the new year for the trees
It reminds us of our role as custodians of the environment.
The name, Tu Bishvat, is simply the festival’s date in the Hebrew calendar – the 15th of the month of Shevat. It coincides with the first sap rising in the fruit trees in the land of Israel.
It is an occasion to remind ourselves of our role as stewards of God’s creation in looking after the environment that has been passed to us from previous generations so that future generations may enjoy it.
