Jewish New Year for Trees

It’s nearly Spring in Israel. Celebrate with us during the Children’s Tu B’Shevat seder, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 4. (Although a Religious and Hebrew School event, children of all ages, their parents and interested adults are welcome.)

Games and learning activities begin at 4:30. The seder, which includes a ritual sampling of a variety of fruits and nuts, along with prayers and blessings for the earth, water, air and trees, begins at 5. A light supper follows at 6.

This year’s event will be even more environmentally focused than in previous years, as we share facts about the health of the world’s resources and consumption use and discuss actions we can take to make a difference.

Come. Enjoy the tastes of Spring. Celebrate the Jewish New Year for Trees with us. And help in tikkun olam (repair of the world) by learning about ways we can lesson our carbon footprints.
