A Kabbalistic Tu B'Shevat Seder for Adults - Sunday, january 20, 2019 at 7 pm
Tu B’Shevat has taken on many new and modern meanings, each of which has added new layers, but this seder will follow closely the original, traditional Kabbalistic seder. Kabbalists understand an upside-down tree to be a metaphor for the way that God’s light flows into the world. Through ritual, song, meditation and food, the seder seeks to celebrate the ten sephirot (aspects of God) through which God’s blessings flow and to bring that shefa (flow) down upon ourselves to cause our lives and world to blossom. No knowledge of Kabbalah is necessary. The seder includes four glasses of wine, fruits, nuts and a sumptuous dessert. $10 per person. RSVP to the synagogue office.

Tu B'Shevat begins the evening of Sunday, January 20, 2019 and is celebrated until sundown on Monday, January 21, 2019. Tu B'Shevat is an ancient celebration of the new year for trees that has changed and evolved over twenty centuries.
