Tu BiSh’vat at Mount Zion
Several centuries ago, mystics in Eretz Israel created the custom of holding a Tu BiSh’vat seder, modeled after the Passover seder, to celebrate the New Year of the Trees. At Mount Zion, we celebrate trees and nature while enjoying the food and drink we get from them – nuts, fruit, carob candy and special combinations of red and white wine.

Tu BiSh’vat Events
Come at 6:00 p.m. to visit with one another and nosh on Hummus and Pita and Israeli Salad. The Tu BiSh’vat Seder will begin at 6:30 p.m.
While Mount Zion’s Chai School students are participating in an Israeli-style Tu BiSh’vat program, we invite all adults to enjoy our Tu BiSh’vat Seder in Margolis Hall. We will experience the seder ritual envisioned by the mystics of Tzfat, tasting some of the produce of Israel, drinking 4 cups of wine (or juice) of differing shades, singing songs, and looking at lovely images on the big screen while we celebrate the “New Year of the Trees.”
No RSVP required, but if you know you are coming, it will be helpful to let us know.
