Tu Bi'Shevat Resource Pack
Tu Bi'Shevat marks the Jewish new year for trees. It began as a purely Halachic date, evolved into a Kabbalistic festival, was adapted by the Zionist movement as a day to celebrate cultivating the land, and in more recent years has become a Jewish environmental awareness day. This resource pack will help you expose your students to some lesser-known aspects of Tu Bi'Shevat. It includes posters, newspaper articles, photographs and an activity about water.
Water: Can’t Live Without It
Water is an indispensable resource whose significance has always been central for the Jewish people. Due to both geographical and political factors, Israel’s dependence on water cannot be understated. Throughout history, even before the establishment of the state, Israel placed real importance on water—on its conservation, its purity, and its source.
