New Year. New Vision. Emerge from your winter sleep and start a new cycle as we
celebrate Tu B'Shvat, the Jewish New Year for the Trees. Join us as we reinterpret this
mystical ritual and raise our consciousness with an eco-friendly eco-kosher* seder.
This seder will include fruits and nuts, wine, and other delectable earthly delights. We'll
celebrate the many gifts that trees have to offer during this evening of discussion, singing,
and of course eating. Whether you've never been to a Tu B'shvat Seder before or go every
year, you are not going to want to miss this one--it will be 100% beginner-friendly, will
feature fabulous seder leaders who will inspire you to take action, and our feast of exotic
fruits will be an unforgettable treat!
