A lone tree grows in the sunshine of a meadow

Please join Barb Pullan for a Tu B’Shevat seder

to celebrate the New Year of the Trees!

We’ll taste a variety of fruits that are grown in Israel, and drink wine (or grape juice!) in the order indicated for this special ritual.

We want to make sure we have enough for everyone to participate, so please

We look forward to celebrating with you!

Although it has its roots in the 16th century, the modern Tu B’Shevat seder is a delightful way to celebrate the New Year of the Trees and the Tree of Life, blending ancient traditions with contemporary values. As with other holidays, we gather together to eat! At Tu B’Shevat, we enjoy a rich array of fruits and nuts (tradition calls for 15 varieties), symbolizing the diversity and bounty of nature, Through rituals and blessings, we express gratitude for the gifts of the earth, our environment, and the interconnectedness of all living things.
