Reservation Required

Tu B’Shevat, the New Year of the Trees, is Judaism’s premier environmental holiday and one that speaks to us clearly today. Celebrate with us at the third annual JSC Tu B’Shevat Seder at Adas Israel.

We’ll connect to the Tree of Life in each of the Four Worlds of Jewish mysticism and join in a community art project. Come taste of the four types of fruits and seven species of foods from the land of Israel, attuned to earth’s rhythms and cycles. On a practical level, we’ll be offering advice on how to switch from coal and nuclear-powered electrical energy in your home to renewable wind power.

Pre-registration required by Jan. 26.  JSC, Adas members $20, others $30.
