         Greening the Holidays (FREE Download)

Greening the Holidays was Shomrei Adamah’s first publication; a 12 page booklet written in 1989 geared for Jewish kids. Each page features a Jewish month/holiday and links the holiday to a different environmental activity. The book’s real highlight is its illustrations by Honey Visor, then a high school student at Akiba Academy in Philadelphia.
