It’s Only Natural: A Tu B’Shvat Celebration

Jan 28, 2010 • 7:00 pm ET
  • This event has passed.

Embrace your inner environmentalist by joining us for a Tu B’Shvat celebration. Dine and drink your way through a traditional seder as we sprinkle in tasty Kabbalistic tidbits and nature-inspired yoga poses. Tu B’Shvat; its more than just trees.

Tu B’Shvat, traditionally known as the birthday of the trees, is a time to think about relating to the natural world. This holiday can be celebrated by planting trees, eating fruits, and having a Tu B’Shvat seder, a ritual that began with the Kabbalists of the 15th century. At our seder, we’ll enjoy some new and exotic fruits, discuss issues of sustainability, and discover connections between environmentalism and Judaism.

This seder is supported in part by the family of Ida Yolken Abramowitz in honor of her yahrzeit, and their generosity allows us to offer a delicious dinner.
