The interweaving importance of trees in Israel and Toronto

Featuring guest speakers: Jeff Springer, Jewish National Fund Toronto Executive Director and Toronto City Councillor James Pasternak

"From the DP Camp of Wegscheid Austria to Toronto, a Tree City of the World, Hilda Swirsky, a child of Holocaust survivors will share her crisscrossing journey and path to celebrate connections to our earth, to nature, to settling and adopting a new country and to Tu B'Shevat, the birthday of trees. Trees that have provided her with a sense of place, healing, green space, resilience, a tool for addressing climate change and a link to Jewish traditions such as learning being the Tree of Life, Eitz Chaim.
