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.
A catalogue of countless simultaneous sessions offers a range of topics from early in the morning until late each night. Some sessions are hands-on art workshops; some involve dance or yoga; others are lectures or traditional bet midrash style text study. Some sessions are tiny; others involve the entire Limmud community.
The possibilities are as broad as Jewish life itself; Biblical poetry to Jewish motifs in science fiction; from variant manuscripts of ancient texts to Israeli film; from Bibliodrama to Jewish hip-hop. Texts are studied intensively, songs are learned, languages and history explored, politics debated, courses of social action plotted. There are many ‘tracks’ one can follow throughout the conference or none at all. A Limmud experience lets you choose what to learn.
