Did you know that Pesach isn’t the only holiday with a Seder associated with it? In the 16th Century, Kabbalists created a Pesach-like Seder to celebrate Tu BiShvat, the New Year for the Trees. Tu BiShvat is the magical, mystical, ecological holiday that provides us an opportunity to reflect on our personal connections to this planet, its trees, and each other. To honor and celebrate nature and the planet, the Tu BiShvat Seder includes eating a combination of fruit and nuts, drinking four cups of wine, and reflecting on the divine Tree of Life by discussing passages of Torah and Talmud. This interactive workshop is specifically designed to give you the tools you need to host your own Tu BiShvat Seder. We will briefly review the history and evolution of this holiday, share Seder formats (and Haggadot), recipes (ingredients) and songs, as well as answer any questions you might have when hosting a Seder and other celebratory activities in honor of this day.

Taught by TBE’s Rabbinic Intern Lorin Troderman. Zoom link found in TBE-mails or email for link.
