The Hewlett’s Jewish Women’s Circle celebrated Tu B’Shevat, “the holiday of the trees,” in an exceptional and exciting way. While enjoying fruit and refreshments, the women learned from local experts how to make their own fresh-fruit arrangements by cutting, slicing, and presenting the fruit in unique ways. Insights about this special holiday were enthusiastically discussed.
The event was very well attended. “It was truly unbelievable,” said Judy Metz of Hewlett, who participates in many of the Jewish Women’s Circle events. “I had a great time meeting so many new people, educating myself, and seeing everybody have a wonderful time.” The Jewish Women’s Circle is a successful project of Chabad of Hewlett.
“There is so much to learn from the cycle of trees emerging from their sleep and how it relates to us as humans on a personal level,” said Mrs. Rivkie Tenenboim from Chabad of Hewlett, who gave some insights about the holiday. This event, like all other Chabad of Hewlett’s activities, was open to everybody regardless of background or affiliation. “We love to see the unity and inspiration that such events bring to the Hewlett community, and we are planning to do it more often,” she noted.
