The month of February opened with a wonderful Tu B’Shevat celebration on February 1st. Everyone planted parsley and lettuce seeds to take home. In addition, CSI donated two trees to be planted in Tattnall Square Park thanks to the efforts of Rabbi Rubinstein, Jami Gaudet, Andrew Silver and Ron Lemon of The Friends of Tattnall Square Park, and Karol Kelley with the UGA Extension. TBI students joined our CSI students for a field trip to Tattnall Square Park. Andrew Silver talked with the students about the development of the park and it’s wonderful features. Our students helped plant the trees, and then participated in a walking tour of the park. Everyone met back at CSI for hot chocolate and marshmallows, and a sampling of various fruits, thanks to Jennifer Bernstein who made sure all of the delicious snacks were there.
Rockin’ Shabbat was held on February 6th, also with a Tu B’Shevat theme. Students planted parsley and lettuce seeds, listened to a Tu B’Shevat story thanks to Jennifer Bernstein, and participated in song and prayer with Rabbi Rubinstein and Miss Sharona. Thanks also to Bonnie and David Cornelius, Micah and Jacob, for sponsoring the Shabbat dinner.
