Tu Bi’Sh’vat 

New Year for Trees

As is the custom around the world, the LJS will be marking the festival of Tu Bi’Sh’vat by planting trees or sponsoring organisations who will be planting trees.

We will be supporting: Trees for Cities, who plant trees in urban woodlands all over England and British Friends of Rabbis for Human Rights, who will be planting olive trees in the West Bank to replace groves that have been burnt down.
