Tu B’Shvat in the Redwoods
Sunday, February 1, 2015
Roberts Regional Recreation Area, Oakland
Morning Adult Seder & Kids’ Adventure • All-Ages Afternoon Offerings
with Luminary Scholar Bonna Haberman, visiting from Israel
Registration is Closed
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. We delight in p’ri ha-etz (the fruit of the trees), and celebrate the season together through the five senses, song, meditation, and Tu B’Shvat teachings.
Read about the adult program and kids’ program, get directions, and more using the links on the left under Tu B’Shvat in the Redwoods.
Thank you to our co-sponsors:
Everyone is welcome at Wilderness Torah events. We create pluralistic, multi-generational community celebrations to reconnect us to the earth-based traditions of Judaism. We welcome Jews, non-Jews, interfaith couples, the LGBTQ community, and people of color. We do our best to offer a range of activities so that people of all backgrounds and experience levels can plug in. Participants should be comfortable in the outdoors and committed to a shared group experience. Please join us to learn about and celebrate the holiday of Tu B’Shvat!
