The Jewish Community Day School hosted a Living Green Family Fest, a Jewish ecological celebration, Jan. 24 at the Goldring Woldenberg Jewish Community Campus.

The program was a celebration of the “New Year of the Trees,” with hands-on environmental activities. Kids learned about caring for animals in a petting zoo, and planting in the JCDS organic garden included a make and take-home seed surprise to reinforce the value of caring for the environment.
