The New Year of the Trees

This year the 15th day of Shevat, the New Year of the Trees was on 16 February. It was during these days that we celebrated the holiday in our school as well.

While our mild winter meant a sensation of spring, in Israel, this is the time when plants are truly reborn. An important message of the holiday is environmental protection, but other favored traditions include the tasting of fruits, which we did together with our elementary students.
