  • Religious School students and families enjoyed planting two trees for Tu B’Shvat. They then sampled 27 different kinds of fruit and later brought home cups planted with seeds. The next week they were among those who learned to bake hamantaschen.

  • The fallen tree and two other dying trees were removed. The trees are at the end of their life span, and more will need to be removed in the future.
