Over 20 people joined us to celebrate Tu B’Shvat, the birthday of the trees. Many thanks to Sarah Harlan for organizing and WRJ/Sisterhood for sponsoring!
Or the “New Year of the Trees” is the birthday of the trees. The holiday is observed on the fifteenth (tu) of the month of Shvat. Scholars believe that Tu B’Shvat was originally an agricultural festival, marking the emergence of Spring. Here at The Temple we celebrate with a chocolate Seder of mystical origins which connects us to the earth and the land of Israel.
