Celebrate Tu B’Shvat with the JCC East Bay at this FREE holiday event! The importance of trees extends further than their beauty. We as humans benefit from trees for many reasons including their contribution towards our health, food, shelter and from them combating climate change by pollution reduction. Dr. Martin Luther King recognized that environmental justice was a part of social justice and believed that “All Life is Interrelated” including the life of trees, plants, animals and human beings. We are all connected to each other!
Bring your family to the JCC East Bay to learn why it is important to celebrate and protect the trees while exploring the importance of tree equity for climate and social justice in honor of Tu B’Shvat and Martin Luther King Day. Activities will include flower planting, leaf printing, storytelling, seed ball making, DIY lemonade, stories with PJ Library Bay Area, and body percussion with Evie Ladin!
