Join Us In Reaching Our Goal!
A TREE FOR EVERY CHILD- Join the CAS Youth Department as we help to rebuild and renew the Carmel Forest
Following the recent Carmel Fire, the road to recovery for Israel has just begun. Staying true to our commitment as a community to care for the needs of the land and people of Israel, we will help rebuild and renew the Carmel Forest.
Think about yourself, your children, your grandchildren, your parents. Everyone is someone's child and we are asking every family in our shul to plant one tree per family member. The more trees the better. There were five million trees destroyed in the Carmel forest fire. Our goal is to help Israel rise from this devastation and show the land and the people that we are here to rebuild side by side with them.
The idea of Tu B'Shvat celebrates renewal in nature but it can also be seen as a personal renewal. The Tanach says, 'Ki ha'adam etz ha'sadeh hu,' which means 'Man is likened to a tree." The roots of a tree run deep below the ground and are its strength and stability. Let us show Israel in her time of great need that we will help to replant her trees. That we- in her time of great need will literally put down roots in her soil. Our message to Israel and her people at this very critical time must be that we will share our strength as a Jewish people to help regain stability in Eretz Yisrael, our land and our home.
Join us in planting a tree for every child 'Ki ha'adam etz ha'sadeh hu,' because Man is likened to a tree."
