Tu B’Shvat is just around the corner!  Traditionally known as the “New Year of the Trees”, in modern times it has been reinterpreted as the Jewish Earth Day.  Each year, Jews around the world come together to celebrate the holiday by planting trees, cleaning beaches, and participating in other acts of “Tikkun Olam” (repairing the world).

Zalul Environmental Association is inviting you to join us by participating in our special 2009 Tu B’Shvat photo competition celebrating our most precious natural resource – water – the source of life not just for trees, but for all living things.

The photographs should fit the theme “Mayim Chaim” (”Water of Life”) and embody the theme of Tu B’Shvat as well as the need to protect the world’s seas and rivers.  GREAT prizes will be awarded to the top three winners – including gear from both Columbia Sportswear and Billabong Clothing Company.  Please read the following rules for more details (in both Hebrew and English).

We’ll be posting participants’ photographs on the Zalul blog and the Zalul website, so check back often to see the latest additions.  Chag sameach!
