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.
Interfaith/Intercultural couples are usually aware that they will have to negotiate differences in their religions, but they may be surprised by needing to navigate cultural differences regarding communication, parenting, parents, and their definition of community. Make the process easier by engaging with other couples facing similar questions. Create an outline of how to approach a conversation with your partner that is honest, caring, and supportive. This discussion series will get the conversations rolling! Exchange ideas about such issues as: Holiday Observances – Which holidays will be celebrated in our home? Dealing With Our Families – How will we talk to our parents about our choices? Raising Children – How can we make sure our child is “part” of each of us? Spiritual Concerns – How do we satisfy our needs and recognize our partner’s? Cultural Differences – How do communication styles and familial expectations impact our relationship? This is one of the most meaningful and powerful things you can do for your relationship. I encourage every couple to participate in a couples group.
