Tu Bishvat Kabbalat Shabbat with Leora Mallach, Co-Founder and Director of Ganei Beantown

January 10, 2014 Boston $10.00

It’s a Shabbat for the trees!

Tu Bishvat is a journey from jubilation before the Lord and communal responsibility to planting parsley in Styrofoam cups in synagogues across America. How do we reclaim relevance to this holiday in the midst of a New England winter? Come hear about fruit trees, foreskins, 3 year waiting periods, and how it all comes together in New England in January.  Join us to discuss and celebrate the Tu Bishvat holiday. This biblical New Year is used as the “birthday” for determining the age of fruit trees as they relate to tithing expectations.

Leora Mallach, co-founder and director of Ganei Beantown: Beantown Jewish Gardens is building community through hands-on food system education framed within Jewish text, tradition and culture.
