TuB'Shevat SederDate: January 15, 2014Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmLocation: Congregation Beth Ami
Tu B'Shevat, the fifteenth of the month of Shevat, celebrates the New Year of the trees. This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. One custom for this holiday is to plant a tree in Israel. Another custom is to eat a new fruit on this day or to eat from the Seven Species described in the Bible as being abundant in the land of Israel. In the 16th century, kabbalists developed a seder ritual that discusses the spiritual significance of fruits and of the seven species. Since then many different seders have been written. OnJanuary 15 we will use one of these modern seders as we eat the fruits and experience the connections between the cycles of nature and the cycles of our lives. Please join us in this celebration.
