The holiday of Tu B’shevat is a time to celebrate the natural world and the diversity and abundance of earth’s incredible resources. This Tu B’shevat brings an awesome responsibility: we must act to save the very creation that we celebrate.
Join Congregation Dorshei Tzedek for a Tu B’shevat seder that will honor the ways that our members act as responsible custodians and champions of food justice, sustainability and local agriculture. We will eat the traditional fruits of the holiday, representing the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual symbols that inspire our feelings of vulnerability, creativity, abundance, and gratitude.
For a potluck nosh, you are invited to bring something that includes any (one or more!) of the Biblical “seven species” of the land of Israel that are also associated with this holiday: figs, dates, olives, barley, wheat, pomegranates, and grapes.
The seder is oriented towards older kids, teens and adults. If you would like to be involved in planning the seder, please contact Rabbi Adam Lavitt (asst [dot] rabbi [at] dorsheitzedek [dot] org).
