Funds donated to through this page will be distributed to help the injured soliders in Tel Hashomer Hospital

The 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar—celebrated this year on Thursday January 25, 2024—is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. Commonly known as Tu Bishvat, this day marks the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.

We mark the 15th of Shevat by eating fruit, particularly from the kinds that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. On this day we remember that “man is a tree of the field” and reflect on the lessons we can learn from our environment.

In honor of this auspicious day, the Chabad Schneerson Center is partnering with Chabad of Tel Hashomer Hospital in Tel Aviv where we are extending help to over 200 injured soldiers being treated there. 

Rabbi Stone has visited Tel Hashomer hospital and the soldiers during a previous time where he saw first-hand the work being done there for the injured soldiers.

Currently, there are over 200 soldiers being treated at Tel Hashomer hospital, for injuries received in a war WE DID NOT ASK FOR, to say the least. Donations collected will go to the soldiers for things like; money to help make their homes accessible, new iPhones/iPads so they can have better communication, money so they can purchase better medical equipment for when they return home (i.e. wheelchairs etc.), uplifting programming in the hospital for them to have some enjoyment during their healing process, and spiritual care from the dedicated Rabbi who makes rounds multiple times daily to listen and share words of inspiration and comfort.
