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.
Nate Bloom, column writer here. Actually, I did mention the actor, Adam Pally, who plays the gay Jewish character in Happy Endings in a November column. As I said in the first paragraph of the item–it wasn’t quite an interfaith celebs item, but it did concern an African American character and a Jewish character teaming up to be Bar Mitzvah DJs. Bottom line: Adam Pally is Jewish, but he is not gay. He is married to a “hometown” Jewish woman and they had their first child about 18 months ago. Here’s a link to that column: http://tinyurl.com/b9mn554
