It’s Tu B’shvat time, the new year of the trees, a Mishnaic holiday that has become a national ecological event.
This year, the original Israeli tree huggers, Keren Kayemet L’Yisrael, also known as the Jewish National Fund, are celebrating their 110th anniversary with a compilation of archival footage from Tu B’shvat celebrations and KKL projects in the years before Israel’s statehood.
The films are being shown at cinematheques throughout the country.
Take a look at some of the first cheesemakers, milking cows with the dulcet tones of ‘Hava Nagila’ playing in the background.
