Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy joined with friends from Temple Sinai of Hollywood to plant trees at a community Tu B’shvat festival in TY Park on February 4th.

 


Tu B’shevat is an ecological holiday that reminds Jews of our connection to the earth and to our role as caretakers of the environment. Some modern practices include donating money to plant trees in Israel or planting trees locally. This holiday marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees.
