Youngsters like Gabe understand the importance of this holiday through Federation-supported programs like PJ Our Way and our Community Relations Committee’s (CRC) Interfaith Tu B’Shevat Seder. Read how Gabe learned about the values of Tu B’Shevat right here in snowy Cleveland:

Meet Tali: 2015-2016 PEI Fellow

Have you ever taken the time to reflect on your primary educational journey? How about the fact that you can read this sentence?

Ally's Jewish Overnight Camp Experience

Hi, my name is Ally and I have been going to Camp Wise for 5 years. The first time I came to camp I went for 2 weeks and the only thing I remember thinking the entire time was “wow, I wish I could go for a whole month,” but soon, that month turned into my whole summer.

And now we are all contemplating the “real story” behind the attack in San Bernardino or whether Paris can happen here.
