This morning, Middle School students celebrated Tu BiShvat with an inspiring Zoom conversation with Shalom Bitan and his son, Nativ, Israeli farmers from Moshav Yishuvim near the Gaza border. In a heartwarming session, they shared tales of agriculture in Israel, emphasizing the resilience of planting seeds amid challenges. Despite the ongoing events in Israel, their field remains a source of hope and strength.

Nativ, a remarkable swimmer representing Israel globally, achieved fifth place in last year's world championship for his age group. As a student at the Rotman Ashel Hanasi Bemerchavim, a school for students with autism, Nativ started an organization called the "Path to the Heart" program, delivering emotional lectures to raise awareness about autism.

Each year, the Bitan family organizes a touching tribute for IDF soldiers on their wheat-filled field. Experience the heartfelt moments in this clip
