Celebration of Tu BiShvat
In celebration of Tu BiShvat, or the "Birthday of The Trees", a ceremonial planting of four trees was held at Wallace Park by the Alliance for Cape Fear Trees on Wednesday, January 19. The planting was generously funded by ACFT Board Member, Dr. Martin Meyerson and led the Bnai Israel and Temple of Israel Hebrew School students.
