Tu B'Shevat Seder

Sun, 01/20/2019 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Tu B’Shevat, one of the four Jewish New Years, is the Birthday of the Trees, a time to honor all that they bring us and all the ways our human lives entwine with the natural world.

Rabbi Shawn Zevit and Rabbi Yael Levy will lead the Seder. We will share fruits and wine or juice, songs and meditation, prayer and reflection, as we move through the four worlds of body, heart, mind and spirit.

…I want sleep
and dream the life of trees, beings
from the muted world who care
nothing for Money, Politics, Power,
Will or Right, who want little from the night
but a few dead stars going dim, a white owl
lifting from their limbs, who want only
to sink their roots into the wet ground
and terrify the worms or shake
their bleary heads like fashion models
or old hippies…

From The Life of Trees by Dorianne Laux
