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.
In addition to the activities always available in the Zim Zoom Family Room, join us on select Sundays and Tuesdays for playful pop-up programs. Listen to story tellers Mimi Greisman and Charlie Chin, build fabric forts and oversized straw towers, or play classic family games like Operation and Trouble during these fun family play dates!
