Tu B’Shevat Gathering & Tree Tour
Laurel Hill West
This event was originally scheduled for Sunday, January 28. Due to inclement weather it will now take place on Sunday, February 4.
Join us for a short tour of Laurel Hill West’s wintry arboretum in celebration of Tu B’Shevat, often called the Jewish New Year for the Trees. As we examine barks, buds, and berries, we’ll learn about the historical, agricultural, and spiritual origins of Tu B’Shevat and how it is celebrated around the world today. Afterward, indoors, enjoy Camuna Cellars wine along with fruits and nuts significant to the holiday and often consumed during Tu B’shevat Seders.
This event is presented with the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History, and will be facilitated by Aaron Greenberg, Laurel Hill’s Arboretum Manager, and Nati Passow, co-founder and former Executive Director of the Jewish Farm School and the current Director of Operations & Finance at Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action.
