NOTE: As of the posting of these resources a devastating earthquake had struck Haiti (http://jrf.org/Haiti-Earthquake-Relief). Given the environmental and human impact of this natural disaster and the message of Tu BeShevat, we are also encouraging awareness of the role of trees, reforestation and more sustainable practices in helping people reclaim their lives and communities rebuild in sustainable ways.

The anthology also includes several examples of preparing a 'Seder Tu B'Shvat.'”
