JNF Celebrates Tu BiShvat
#TreesAreTrending - Plant Trees Now!
Tu BiShvat, celebrated this year on February 10, embodies the abiding dedication to ecology, environmentalism, and conservation that JNF has always championed. Over the years,Tu BiShvat has taken on the theme of planting trees in Israel, creating a special connection to Jewish National Fund. Additionally, Jewish National Fund sponsors events and school programs in hundreds of communities across the United States, as well as on college campuses.
