14th Annual Tu b'Shvat Seder

Tu B'Shvat

RSVP by January 20>

Suggested Donation: $10 per adult; $5 per child; $25 family max

Please join us for one of our favorite traditions! Learn about the Jewish relationship to the environment in a casual, all ages, interactive musical celebration of Tu B'Shvat (also known as the new year for trees). As always, Danny Wallenberg will lead our Family Choir in a performance, Chantal Blaustein will have a fun activity for 6-11 year olds, and Bonnie Silverman will be baking her famous challah trees.

We're especially excited about this year's guest speaker, Anne Nicklin, Executive Director of the Chicago-based Building Materials Reuse Association.

The evening includes a potluck dinner, so dust off your favorite dairy/veg recipe for a crowd or devise some new culinary treat (no desserts, please - we've got that covered). Please note that nuts are an important part of the Tu B'Shvat seder plate, and will be on the dining tables.

Need-based scholarships available. Please contact the Green Team at [email protected] - it is our honor to make sure that everyone can participate.

And please be sure to thank JRC's Green Team for organizing the evening!
