    Tu BiShvat Seder with JCEP led by Rabbi Gilah Langner
    January 28, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
    Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

    The Seder is a festive gathering, featuring fruits and nuts in honor of the Jewish holiday of Tu BiShvat, the New Year of the Trees. Although Tu BiShvat has become a modern Jewish environmental holiday, the Seder comes from the Kabbalists of Safed, Israel in the 16th century who associated specific fruits and nuts with a mystical understanding of the world. Our JCEP families will be on hand as we sample fruits and nuts from the four worlds, create environmental art, and renew our commitment to healing this planet. We’ll be in the Activity Room.
