Happy Birthday Trees!!  NHC Cheder celebrated the New Year for Trees with a Tu Bishvat Seder.

We were reminded that our ancestors were attached to the land and the need to continue to look after the world if we are to continue enjoy the abundance of its fruits.  We drank 4 glasses of grape juice from fizzy white, through pink to still red.   Firstly, we ate  fruit and nuts with an inedible shell but an edible inner core, secondly fruit with an  Edible outer but an inedible core, dates , mangos, and thirdly, a fruit where we can eat it all and fourthly, the spirit of fruit, by smelling spices and herbs.

On this occasion everyone was allowed to play with their food making beautiful designs before eating their creations. Great fun was had by all.
