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.
“If any city in America deserves the title of home of the Beat Generation, it is San Francisco,” says Bill Morgan, archivist and bibliographer for public figures such as Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and others. On a literary walking tour of North Beach, Morgan provides a dynamic trip back to the Beats’ legendary past.
Morgan served as Ginsberg’s personal archivist and bibliographer from the early 1980s until the author’s death of cancer in 1997. Over their twenty-year relationship, Morgan became quite close to Ginsberg and has written extensively on the Beat Generation and its key figures.
Presented in conjunction with The Allen Ginsberg Festival and the exhibition Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg at the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
