This colorful booklet will give all the basics about this holiday which combines elements of Halloween, Mardi Gras and the secular new year. It is a holiday not only for children who know immediately that anything with a costume will be fun, but for adults too.
Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
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.

Morning Adult Seder & Kids’ Program • All-Ages Afternoon Offerings
with Luminary Scholar Bonna Haberman, visiting from Israel. Includes a program at for families with toddlers, ages 1 to 4.
As the days begin to lengthen, we pause during Tu B'Shvat to celebrate the unseen awakening of spring. Deep within the trees, the sap begins to flow as the trees start their cycle anew.
In the tradition of the Kabbalists (16th century mystics of Tsfat, Israel), we gather in the forest to create an experiential Tu B'Shvat seder that connects us to the trees and the elements.
While the adults engage in the morning seder co-led by visiting scholar Bonna Haberman, Wilderness Torah B’hootz mentors will lead kids ages 4–12 on a journey into the wilds! Afterward, everyone gathers to eat lunch together, followed by a choice of afternoon Tu B'Shvat activities for all ages.
Come celebrate the season through the five senses!
