Organic Tu B'Shevat Seder

Please join us in celebrating the New Year for the Trees! Tu B’Shevat is a time in Israel when the rains have fallen and the blossoms begin to appear on the almond trees and we pray for a healthy harvest. In contemporary life, Tu B’Shevat is thought of as a Jewish “Earth Day.” Tu B’Shevat is an opportunity for Jews to address global environmental concerns as a community. The holiday offers reflection on being responsible stewards of the earth through Jewish spiritual teachings. Join us for this meal of organic, traditional foods! RSVP  so that we have enough for all!
