This beautiful booklet tells the historical roots of Tu Bishvat and Judaism's long-standing sacred connection to trees. You will also find suggestions for activities for young children and ideas for hosting a Tu Bishvat seder.
InterfaithFamily and the Workmen's Circle are celebrating Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish New Year for the trees, and you're invited!
Join us for a FREE afternoon filled with food, music, art projects and social justice.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
I hate to say this but I sense a lot of defensiveness in the writer. If you have to “defend” your choice, then there is a part of you that is not comfortable with what you have done. The writer should simply accept the fact that there are congregants who will not agree with her decision: that does not make them “close minded” – it makes them true to their own beliefs on what constitutes a good Jew and yes, for many people, marrying Jewish is part of that.
