TU B’SHVAT (“The New Year of the Trees”) is both a mystical celebration and a call to environmental awareness. Jewish tradition is to observe this holiday with a Seder, a ritual meal with a prescribed order of of fruits and nuts, drink, and blessings. As the holiday has evolved, so has its multiple meanings, yielding a rich experience of gratitude for the earth, dedication to the preservation and care of life, and a collective exploration of the personal and mystical symbolism of the natural world.
Our Tu B’Shvat Seder is open to all who wish to take part in exploring our relationships with nature, land, place, community, and spirit. You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy this communal experience: juice that changes from white to red, fruits with a hard outer shell and a soft center or the opposite, a chance to remember and explore our connections to the earth, each other, and our deepest selves.
THE SEDER WILL BE LED BY members of the HaMakom community. The Seder features guided visualizations, blessings, and teachings intended for adults and teenagers, rather than young children.
