Chaverim Plants a Nuttall Oak Tree beside the Playground

How do you plant a tree?

Big image

First, you dig a really big hole.

Big image

Compare your height to the tree's. Which one is taller?

Big image

Touch the branches. Feel the bark. Smell the dirt.

Big image

Work together to pull the tree out of its plastic container.

Big image

Place the tree in the hole.

Big image

Pick up clumps of dirt to fill up that hole.

Big image

How come our tree is shorter now?

Big image

Wait patiently for a chance to use the shovel.

Like the mighty oak, may these children always grow toward the light.

"As we go through life, we must always move towards holiness and light, reaching ever higher for that which is beyond us." (Talmud Berachot 48a)
