JNF Celebrates Tu BiShvat

Tu BiShvat, celebrated this year on January 21, 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 JNF. Additionally, Jewish National Fund sponsors events and school programs in hundreds of communities across the United States, as well as on college campuses.

College Campuses
Jewish National Fund and Alpha Epsilon Pi are once again partnering for Tu BiShvat on 135 campuses in 37 states. Students receive materials and information to conduct a Tu BiShvat Seder and learn about Jewish National Fund’s work in environmental sustainability. Additionally, 18 JNF Campus Fellows will be promoting Tu BiShvat at their local Hillel’s, Chabad’s and Greek Fraternity and Sorority houses throughout January. Undergraduates benefit greatly from these opportunities and our partnership serves to make campuses and Jewish communities stronger.
