Celebrate Tu B’Shvat – often referred to as Jewish Arbor Day – by getting outside and cleaning up a green space in DC!

Celebrate Tu B'Shvat – often referred to as Jewish Arbor Day – by cleaning up a green space in DC! Meet on the banks of the Anacostia River to do a trash clean up at Kingman and Heritage Islands. We'll do a bit of learning about the holiday and then divide into teams to clean up the area. At the end, we'll briefly gather to share some fruits traditionally eaten for Tu B'Shvat. All clean-up supplies and snacks will be provided. In case of heavy rain or snow this program will be canceled.

Who: This event is open to volunteers of all ages.

Where: Kingman and Heritage Islands. Exact location with map will be shared via email after registration.

Registration: Registration for this project is free but required. Please register for each individual member of your family so we have an accurate head count.

Questions? Please email Rabbi Atara at acohen@edcjcc.org.
