Today is the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shvat, also known as the New Year of the Trees, where the Jewish community takes time to thank God for the miracle of nature. The Fellowship’s Michael Seiler tells us about a Fellowship hosted activity where school children joined with the elderly in the Israeli community of Ashkelon to celebrate the holiday by planting herbs.

Laurie Simkovich, a Fellowship staff member based in Chicago, recently traveled to Israel, where she visited several of the projects you make possible with your generous support.
Two years ago, 20-year-old Eden began volunteering with The Fellowship, and was paired with 71-year-old Rachel who participates in our With Dignity and Fellowship program. The relationship they formed is so strong that today they don’t know how they’d live without one another.
Because of our observance of New Year's Day, the Bridge blog is suspending activity through
January 1. We’ll be back on Tuesday, January 2 for more updates from the Holy Land. We wish you a wonderful and blessed New Year, and thank you for always being a friend of The Fellowship!
This week’s recipe comes from the kitchen of The Fellowship’s own Rachel Katzman, who regularly cooks up healthy kosher dishes, like this week’s spaghetti squash latkes!
