Description Join Wilderness Torah to celebrate the New Year
of the Trees – in the East Bay Redwoods!

Sunday, January 19, 2014 | 10 am to 3 pm
Roberts Regional Recreation Area, Oakland

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!
