Tu B’Shvat, the New Year of the Trees, in the East Bay Redwoods

January 28, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Join Kehilla as we co-sponsor Tu B’Shvat, the New Year of the Trees, in the East Bay Redwoods.

As the days begin to lengthen, we pause during Tu B’Shvat to celebrate the unseen awakening of spring. Deep within the trees, the sap begins to flow as the trees start their cycle anew.

In the tradition of the Kabbalists (16th century mystics of Tsfat, Israel), we gather in the forest to create an experiential Tu B’Shvat seder (ceremony) that connects us to the trees and the elements and takes us on a journey from the physical world to the spiritual world. We will delight in p’ri ha-etz (the fruit of the trees), and celebrate the season together through the five senses, song, meditation, and Tu B’Shvat teachings co-led by Wilderness Torah’s Maggid Zelig Golden and Hazzan Shulamit Wise Fairman from Kehilla Community Synagogue.

In the afternoon, join us for an ecology walk around the beautiful redwood groves, a family concert with Octopretzel, and other exciting Tu B’Shvat inspired offerings.

Date and Time: Sunday, January 28, 2018; 10am – 3:30pm
