Rabbi Yitzchok Moully, youth director at the Chabad Jewish Center in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, will be introducing  a new art installation in honor of Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year of Trees, inspired by the destruction of Hurricane Sandy.

On January 27, the “Nature vs. Nature” installation will exhibit large uprooted trees, the roots of which will provide hooks upon which visitors will be able to hang written prayers, wishes, or meditations, according to a report by New Jersey Jewish News.
