Tu BiShvat Across Campus

Just as we eat matzah on Pesach, and build a sukkah on Sukkot, planting trees and connecting to Israel is the way to celebrate Tu BiShvat. Tu BiShvat Across Campus is a multi-core campaign by JNF and WZO Dept. for Diaspora Activities to bring Israel to your community by conducting meaningful and exciting observance of Tu BiShvat. You can choose to participate by planting trees in Israel, holding a Tu BiShvat Seder, partying with our Israeli pub quiz, or studying with our Zionist texts through our "green" beit midrash and other educational experiences. No matter which option you choose, we will provide you with the resources to celebrate Tu BiShvat in your way.

Israeli Green Pub Quiz

Have a fun, environmental-themed Israeli trivia night using pop culture media! Create teams with your friends or play individually. You will get an insight into Israeli society and its cutting edge environmental technologies while watching cool contemporary commercials and videos from Israel. You must register using the link above to receive the Israeli Green Pub Quiz in the mail.
