Children Learn about Tu B’Shvat at Mr Greens

A class of young students got a special treat ahead of Tu B’shva, they visited Mr. Greens – a local produce store – and got a visual lesson on the different new fruit from the stores owner Shloime Klein.

Children stared in wonder at the many different and exotic looking fruit, from a dragon fruit to a finger lime, giving them a living lesson on the special holiday of Tu B’shvat.

The stores owner Shloime Klein took various different items off the shelves and showed them to the children and explained some of the significance and how they relate to stories that heard and learned about – such as the store of the Rambam and the hand and Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and the carob tree.

Following the tour of the Mr. Greens produce store on Albany Avenue, the children each reacived a cooler bag with two different ‘shehechyanu’ items to take home.
