Tu Bishvat plantings with 80 Young Judaeans from the 2005-6 Year Course at Neurim last week, while visiting us. A commemoration plaque was set, to start a new tradition. Barbara Goldstein encouraged the Judaeans to give and set examples by "Maasim Tovim" (good deeds) for the children at risk in Israel.
Tu B'Shevat celebrations at army camps in the North. Students participating in Jewish Agency programs planted trees with army personnel in the North, to strengthen the connection between youth and the army.
In other areas of the northern region, new immigrants and police officers joined soldiers in planting 150 olive and cypress trees.
