Join us in person or online via Zoom for a unique Tu B’Shevat seder, marking the “New Year for the Trees.” Readings, songs, and poems will reflect the origins of the seder adapted to progressive secular Jewish life in the 21st century. The Tu B’Shevat Haggadah will be sent to registrants about a week before the seder.
All registrants (in person and online) will be invited to actively participate, with the option to sign up for a reading of their choice (first-come, first-served).
Ritual foods will be provided at the in-person seder. If you are attending online, here is a list of ritual foods (optional) that we invite you to have during the seder:
- something red: red wine, red grape juice, cranberry juice, etc.
- something white: white wine, white grape juice, apple juice, etc.
Fruits and nuts:
