GROWING POTENTIAL ON TU B’SHVAT

Every year to mark Tu B’shvat (the Jewish trADItion’s “New Year for the trees”), schools and youth groups across Israel take their students on nature hikes and add to the wonder of Israel’s vast forests by planting young saplings of their own.

Very often, children with disabilities are left on the sidelines for such activities, but thanks to ADI’s international volunteers, National Service volunteers and our partners at Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-JNF, our amazing residents got in on the action as well. The ADI residents learned about Israel’s unique nature, enjoyed seasonal fruits and got their hands dirty planting trees.

It was an experience rooted in growth through inclusion. Tu B’shvat is always a fun day, but promoting inclusive activities is truly something to celebrate.

Another great way to mark Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month (#JDAIM)!
