InterfaithFamily and the Workmen's Circle are celebrating Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish New Year for the trees, and you're invited!

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.
Berit Engen began weaving as a child in Norway, and now practices this ancient craft of entwining woof (horizontal threads) with warp (vertical threads) from her home in Oak Park, Illinois. She finds inspiration for her work in the richness and diversity of the Jewish experience: from the laws of the Torah to the songs of Leonard Cohen, from the chanting of ancient prayers to the satiric incisiveness of Yiddish curses. Meet her as she shares the Spertus Institute exhibit of her unique miniature tapestries.
