Tu B’Shevat Seder

January 27, 2021    
6:00 pm

Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish “New Year of the Trees,” is coming at the very next full moon, the night of January 27. We invite you to join CJC – from the warmth and comfort of your own home – to celebrate with a seder designed to open the heart to growth, renewal, and sweetness. 

Join us on Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87630797548

Here’s what you will need to prepare:

1) Tree fruits. Ideally, you need at least one fruit in each of the following categories (and we encourage you to get creative and to choose fruits that fit your dietary needs!):

    • tree fruit with an inedible shell (e.g. oranges, bananas, nuts, coconut)
    • tree fruit with a pit or seed (cherries, plums, apricots, olives)
    • tree fruit that’s edible all the way through (figs, mulberries, apples, pears)

You can use fresh fruits or dried fruit. You can have one fruit in each category, or several. You can opt to try a new fruit that you’ve never had before, and say the Shehecheyanu for trying something new. This can be as simple or as elaborate as you want.

2) Grape juice or wine, both white and red. You’ll need enough for four symbolic cups: one white, one white with a bit of red in it, one red with a bit of white in it, and one red. (NOTE:We will be mixing the white and red to create different colors in the glass, so no need to use the expensive stuff)

3) A Haggadah: CJC will send you a copy of this year’s Tu B’Shevat Haggadah when you register for the seder! Feel free to print it or to use the digital copy.

PLEASE CLICK HERE to register in advance. You will receive Zoom connection information a few days before the event.

We are looking for folks who are interested in leading parts of the seder – readings, songs and prayers. If you are willing and interested in leading a small part,  please let us know!
