Families with Children All Ages
Celebrate Tu BiSh’vat, a holiday of environmental awareness and gratitude for our natural world, by reusing and recycling. Join Bash the Trash, an organization that builds, performs, and educates with musical instruments made from recycled and reused materials, as they lead this family program, combining a show, hands-on instrument-building, and a noisy and fun parade/jam session. Space is limited.
Bash the Trash Bio: Bash the Trash is a group of musicians and teaching artists, weaving together science, music, and environmental awareness. Come see what all the noise is about with this unique group who have jammed with Yo-Yo Ma and Wynton Marsalis, visited Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, led environmental parades through Washington, D.C., and still perform twice a year at Carnegie Hall.
Location: Battery Park
From: 11:00 am - 1:00pm
Sponsored by HIAS, the refugee agency of the Jewish community, join Rabbi Buchdahl, who will also be singing at the rally, and Rabbi Salth for a powerful community action at Battery Park. In the 1930’s, Jewish refugees were turned away from these shores in their greatest hour of need. Come raise up your voice for refugees today and help ensure that history is not allowed repeat itself. Sister actions will be held the same day around the country.
Central’s group will first meet at the Jewish Heritage Museum (36 Battery Place) at 10:30am and check-in will be required upon arrival. Please RSVP to let us know you’ll be there.
