Tu Bishvat

Tu Bishvat Beit Am 5782

Let's celebrate Tu Bishvat together!

This year the RAC will sponsor two activities at Beit Am to celebrate the New Year of the Trees.

Planting Fun: Monday, January 17th 1:00 - 3:00 pm
DIG IT! Bring gloves, shovels, trowels to pot saplings and plant larger saplings, and have fun while beautifying the Beit Am landscape. Bring snacks for your family: foods that are grown on trees are encouraged.

Taking Care of People Who Have Less Than We Do — Pay It Forward (Tzedakah) Opportunity
In Temple days the tithe was used to take care of people in need. Tu Bishvat falls on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so we can tie our ancient Tu Bishvat practice with MLK’s modern day advocacy of caring for the poor. Beit Am will be collecting grocery and gas gift cards or cash to donate to the School District Welcome Center. Your contributions will help provide the most vulnerable among us with food and transportation. 

Gift cards and cash can be brought to the Tree Planting event and given to Jenney Lee, or dropped off at Beit Am during office hours (MWF 11-3, TTH 9-1). Call or email the office to make arrangements for after hours delivery at 541-753-0067 or If you will be in the building but the office is closed, gift cards/cash can be slipped under the office door. Deadline: Monday, January 17th
