Jewish Student Union bond over Jewish customs and culture in Tu B’shevat celebration

Of the 12 members who showed up to the Jewish Student Union meeting on Feb. 28, six were Jewish. The other six were eager to learn about Tu B’shevat, the new year for trees. Sophomore Ron Talmor explained the traditions and significance behind the Jewish festival Tu B’shevat.

It is the furthest from a formal meeting. Members are lying on tables. Some sit on each other. Others wrestle over a bag of challah bread. In the midst of learning about the Jewish culture, the Jewish Student Union has created their own unique bond.
