UPDATE (1/5/2022): Due to the current surge in COVID cases, this event will now happen exclusively via Zoom.
Join jHaven, the Jewish Federation's under-45 division, for a virtual seder to celebrate Tu B'shvat, the Jewish “new year for trees,” and explore its contemporary relevance to our lives and community.
What is a Tu B'shvat seder? It is a Kabbalistic tradition based on the Pesach seder that helps us to explore our connection to the land, to our communities, to the world/each other and to ourselves — all through the medium of food, wine and conversation. We will also take this opportunity to explore our community’s responsibilities around issues of environmentalism and sustainability, and ways we can commit to a “greening” our community for the future.
Virtual participants who register by Sunday, January 9** will receive a FREE gift bag, complete with all the ingredients you’ll need to participate in the seder remotely: two small bottles of kosher wine or grape juice (one red, one white), fresh fruits and nuts, a copy of the “haggadah” and some added surprises!
Gift bags can be picked up at the Beckerman Lender Jewish Community Building on Thursday, January 13 between 9am and 7pm or on Friday, January 14 before 1pm, or can be delivered in person (socially distanced and wearing a mask) by Derek Holodak on Thursday, January 13 by appointment.
