Sunday, January 21

6:00 - 9:00 PM

Tu B'Shevat, the “New Year for the Trees,” marks the beginning of spring in Israel. Originally an agricultural festival, today it has become a tree planting festival in Israel. It is also a way for Jews outside of Israel to symbolically bind themselves to Israel by eating foods grown there. The custom of holding a Tu B'Shevat Seder dates back to the 17th century.


In keeping with this tradition, we will gather together to eat, drink, sing, and rejoice in the miracle of the tree.


Our Tu B'Shevat Seder will include four cups of wine, with varying combinations of red and white, representing the shifting of yearly seasons. It will incorporate readings about trees and fruit from a range of Jewish literature.


And we will share a pot-luck meal with traditional dishes featuring fruits and vegetables mentioned in the Torah.
