Tu Bishvat “Can You Dig it” program planned for January 16 is canceled due to Omicron surge.
Though we are saddened to have to cancel our “Can You Dig It?” Tu BiShvat programming, we can still celebrate the New Year of the Trees by supporting our ECC garden. The on-campus garden is tended by the youngest in our community and it enriches their emerging learning of the environment, agriculture, and nature. Each week, students weed, water, and harvest, and we are blessed to have teachers and volunteers continue to nurture this special program. Please consider a small donation to honor the holiday, our preschoolers, and our dedicated faculty. Help us grow
About Tu BiShvat
Tu BiShvat is the holiday occurring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat. It is also called Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot,’New Year of the Trees’. In contemporary Israel, the day is celebrated as an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted in celebration.
Main holiday custom is the Tu Bi’Shvat Seder, a festive ceremony, often accompanied by a meal featuring fruits in honor of the holiday.
