JAO partners with Christian and Muslim schools for multi-faith program
April 2, 2021
Jewish Academy of Orlando fifth grade students partnered with Muslim peers from Leadership Preparatory School and Christian peers from Geneva School in "Trees for Peace," a multi-faith tree planting service held at Mead Gardens. The tree planting is part of the schools' Multi-faith Education Program that has been in place for almost 20 years. The students typically meet at each school to learn about each other's cultures and religions. Because of COVID-19 safety precautions, the students met only once. This year's tree planting took place at Mead Botanical Garden in Winter Park.
