Happy Tu BiShvat!

By January 16, 2022No Comments

This past weekend was especially hard. We’re grateful that all of the hostages from Beth Israel are safe and sound, especially since today is a holiday, and Jewish holidays are always about overcoming, and being stronger together, as a community.

We’ve long found a special connection between ELEM, and what Tu BiShvat (or “Birthday for the Trees) is.

This holiday, dedicated to nature, growth, flourishing, and in the last few years sustainability, has a lot in common with our work.

We’ve asked our lovely intern, Emily, to talk a little bit about her trip to Israel to plant trees, and what ELEM means to her.
