Tot Shabbat

Saturday, February 11, 2017 • 15 Shevat 5777

10:30 AM - 11:30 AMHavurah

Please scroll down to RSVP!

The holiday of Tu B'shvat celebrates the 'birthday of the trees.' But, why do that in the middle of winter rather than during the green blossoming of spring or the harvests of autumn? Tu B’shvat inspires us to notice subtle new growth and tender beginnings. We remind ourselves to have faith that the rains will cease and the seasons will progress. Even more importantly, we celebrate the internal growth that happens when we aren’t really paying attention. Our ancestors, in very different lands, understood this Full Moon of Shvat to be the time when the sap begins to rise again!

You can pass on the invitation to others who might want to join us (grandparents, friends...).

Please bring one of the traditional 7 species (something with wheat, barley, figs, grapes, pomegranates, olives, honey) or some other fruit or nut. For more information on the spiritual and cultural meaning of the 7 species, please see the information on our website.

Young children (0-5) and their parents celebrate Shabbat with singing, movement, blessings and storytelling. We touch on the main highlights of the Shabbat morning service: wonder, fun, song, listening to the world, dancing and Torah. Afterward we enjoy an informal oneg nosh and the chance to play and schmooze. Led by Deborah Eisenbach-Budner. Please RSVP below if you can come.

Please separate with a comma.
