Loving the Earth: The Fourth Annual Community Tu B’Shevat Seder
Adas Israel Congregation
Wednesday, January 23, 2019
7:00 PM — 9:00 PM
2850 Quebec Street, NW
Washington, DC 20008 United States
Join us for the fourth annual JSC Tu B’Shevat Seder at Adas Israel! We’ll attune ourselves to the earth’s rhythms and cycles, tasting the three types of fruits and seven species of foods from the land of Israel. We’ll enter into “tree consciousness” and sing Tu B’Shevat songs. From its ancient origins as the deadline for determining offerings of tree fruit at the Temple, to the 16th century mystical creation of a Feast of Fruits, down to our climate-challenged times, Tu B’Shevat is the Jewish holiday that reminds us of our love for, and dependence on, the natural world.
Pre-registration required by Jan. 21 (or we’ll run out of food!)
