In honour of Tu B'Shvat our shul had a tree planting yesterday afternoon. Channah and I went, as Rachel had a lot of work to get done.
After carefully measuring a location has been chosen for the tree.
Let the digging begin.
The compost is mixed with dirt.
Channah does her part.
'Yohanan' is ready to be planted.
Channah next to the newly planted tree.
When you plant a tree in a forest (as we did last year) you will never be able to find the tree again. This tree is going to grow and provide shade for kids playing outside of our shul. It is really neat that Channah will be able to watch the tree she helped plant grow.
