Riverside Beavers learn about Tu BiShvat

Date: 21st Jan 2020 Author: Neil Truby

This week our Riverside Beavers found out about the Jewish holiday Tu BiShvat, which occurs next month.

Tu BiShvat is a celebration of trees, fruit and the environment generally.

The Beavers found out about the Jewish faith and the meaning of the festival.

To help this they tried all sorts of different fruits like pomegranates, figs, dates, cherries, passion fruit, kumquat, Litchis, kiwi, avocados and lots more.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
