The ritual of the Tu Bishvat Seder dates back to the 16th Century as Kabbalah was finding its voice in Medieval Jewry. Now a Tu Bishvat Seder is a chance to explore the Torah, Jewish tradition and the modern issues of taking care of our earth.

Seder foods and drinks will be provided by Or Haneshamah's B'nei Mitzvah Group.

Dinner and dessert are potluck! Please bring something to share.
