Ganon Lavan has been preparing for our upcoming chag, Tu B'Shvat, by learning about how it is celebrated in Israel and the United States. Last week, the children sang songs and studied the 7 Species - and as a closing activity, the class threw a birthday party celebrating their class "tree", Noni. The students participated in Tu B'Shvat themed activities including making crowns with the 7 species and shaping trees from play dough. At the end of the celebration the students gave Noni "cake" (a pot of soil with candles) and sang Happy Birthday! The students had so much fun celebrating!
