Eco-To-Be Shvat for the Jewish New Year of Trees


Thanks to the generous support of Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation #MakeItHappen Grant we organized along with Cukunft Jewish Association an ecological event Eco-To-Be- Shvat, a belated celebration of the New Year of Trees – Tubi Shvat.

The event took place in the trendiest spot in Wroclaw city center, a famous Barbara Infopunkt Cafe, that was appointed the official office of Wroclaw – 2016 European Capitol of Culture. In program we prepared many entertaining ecological activities for children, youth and adults. Everyone found something interesting for him/herself.

For the event we planned many activities:

-ecological workshop led by artist and activist Dariusz Paczkowski and Klamra Foundation,
– designing ecological shopping bags with Jewish motives,
– flower arranging workshop with Irena Kokusz (ROIer 2006, Cukunft),
– lectures on ecology in Judaim delivered by Jan Kirschenbaum (HIA Fellow, Cukunft),
– promotion of 2016 Minority Calendar with Cukunft Jewish Association published by Marcin Czerwiński and a well-known Polish magazine – “Rita Baum,”
– ecological Israeli cuisine by Laurina Todesaite (ROIer 2013) and Israeli-Lithuanian Startup Eat&Travel,
– Traditional Tubi Shvat Seder in a progressive nutshell
– Israeli wine testing.

This event was organized thanks to generous support received from Charles and Lynn Schusterman Foundation and #MakeItHappen Tubi Shvat Micro Grant.
