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.
Thanks for sharing the article. After reading it, I thought of this: “Frontline, From Jesus to Christ…The First Christians” at PBS.org here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/
I think you, your daughter, and your husband might gain a great deal from this series as it delves into the cultural, religious, and political elements that Judaism faced 2,000 years ago under hegemony of Roman Empire – and how Christianity broke and moved away from Judaism, morphing into a dominant social, political, and religious force under Constantine. The 4 parts to this series are brilliant, well-produced, and instructive on many levels. I think it will help your daughter understand the cultural nuances between the proponents of both Judaism and Christianity.
