Planting a tree
Over 200 people braved rain and cold to attend a Tu B'Shvat event in Golders Green, north west London to celebrate the New Year for trees.
Organised by the Jewish Community Centre for London in association with the London Jewish Cultural Centre, the Sunday afternoon event was aimed to attract families with children paying and their parents getting in for free.
Jewish Community centre for London board member Clive Lawton joined with others in the planting of a tree. Children attending were able to take away a pot they decorated with seeds so that it could grow when they got home.
As well as the planting and food and drink, the afternoon saw stories and songs being performed as well as painting.
