      Dear Friends,

      Tonight begins the holiday of Tu B'Shevat- the 15th of the Jewish
      month of Shevat. The Talmud(Rosh Hashanah) tells us that the 15th of
      Shevat is the new year for the trees. It marks the early blossoming
      that is beginning in the Land of Israel; hard for us in the
      cold and snowy Diaspora to relate to. There is a kabbalistic custom
      to have a Tu B'Shevat seder- full of fruit, nuts, wine and deep
      symbolism. This past Shabbos was Shabbos Shira- the Shabbos of Song,
      as the Torah portion we read contains the Song at the Sea, which the
      Jews sung after witnessing the miracle of the Red Sea being split.
      Despite the harsh winter weather- both Tu B'Shevat and Shabbos Shira
      represent a renewal of spirit. Here some great Jewish music events
      to keep you warm and inspired!

      There is a great new venue for Jewish music in Park Slope,
      Brooklyn. The Jewish Music Cafe is located at Congregation B'nai
      Jacob and features a stage, state of the art lighting and sound, and
      delicious refreshments for sale. The cafe', a project of musician
      Elie Massias, features live music several times a month. Past
      performers have included: Aaron Razel, Meir Solomon of the Moshav
      Band, Elie Massias, Asefa, Oneg Shemesh, Rocky Ziegler, and White
      Shabbos. Some upcoming performers include: Pey Dalid, Chaim Dovid,
