We invite all those interested to join us for a Tu B’Shevat seder with traditional Tu B’Shevat food and drink, such as fruits, nuts, juice, and wine. The seder will be in lieu of services, though they will still light the Shabbat candles and recite Kaddish.

Tu B’Shevat (or “New Year of the Trees”) is Jewish Arbor Day. Scholars believe that this was originally an agricultural festival, marking the emergence of spring. Many Jews today hold a modern verision of the Tu B’Shevat seder, and the holiday has also become a tree-planting festival in Israel, in which Israelis and Jews around the world plant trees in honor or in memory of loved ones and friends.
