Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

The entire Tenafly Chabad Academy celebrated Tu B’Shevat, the new year for trees. Tu B’Shevat marks the season in which the earliest blooming trees in Israel are beginning a new fruit bearing cycle. To celebrate, all middle school students planted beautiful succulent plants and also got to try new fruits and make a “shehecheyanu.” They tried figs, dates, carob and olives. Eighth graders had a special seder for Tu B’Shevat with many fruits from Israel.

Lower school students had a great time planting parsley seeds. They are looking forward to watching them grow and harvesting their parsley. They also ate special Tu B’Shevat treats and played a matching game with the symbols of Tu B’Shevat.

In addition all teachers were treated to a special Tu B’Shevat treat of nuts and dried fruits. Happy Tu B’Shevat!
