Zoom Tu B'Shvat Seder
Saturday, January 30, 5 pm 

Please join us for songs, storytelling, and discussion celebrating connections between Judaism and ecology. Tu B’Shvat is the Birthday of the Trees, the time when the sap begins to flow up from the roots to nourish and replenish the tree.

Come make a commitment to take action for climate justice!

To prepare: please have some fruits and nuts representing three categories;

1. pitted (olives, dates, plums, etc)
2. Hard outside (Nuts in their shells, bannanas, citrus)
3. Soft inside and out (grapes, figs).

Please also bring a spoonful of maple syrup and a story about a tree to share.

Co-sponsored by Vashon Havurah and Vashon Climate Action Group
