Rabbi Shaked presents a Tu-Bishvat seder, Saturday after service

Tu-Bishvat, a festival celebrating trees and fruits, coincides with this week’s Shabbat, starting on Friday night and ending on Saturday night. In modern times, particularly among Progressive Jews, it has become a celebration of ecological awareness. As a minor festival, Tu-Bishvat is often poorly understood. Rabbi Sa’ar Shaked will present the JTalk this week, leading a mini – Seder, explaining its significance and the various rituals associated with it, and reading and singing the traditional songs.
