This Year, Tu BiSh’vat is About More Than Planting a Tree

By path2positive

This weekend, we celebrate Tu BiSh'vat, the Jewish New Year of the tree, an agricultural tradition held for millennia to honor the sacredness of G-d's creation. Jewish communities across America will gather to celebrate the holiday with community members and family, and many will plant a tree in honor of the new year. 

Last year, we encouraged you to plant a tree in your community, but this year we ask that you take it a step further. Climate action is not a static process, it changes and requires more of us as time moves on. This year, visit The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, where they have compiled some helpful tools for climate action on Tu BiSh'vat.

 

Lastly, we would like to congratulate The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism in their recently formed partnership with our partners, Greenfaith. Both organizations are doing amazing things for creation.
