Tu B'Shvat is considered the "New Year" for the trees, originally a day for fruit farmers to determine the age of their trees and thus what was permissable to eat, and also tax. Many centuries later it was reconstituted by the mystical Chassidim as a ritualistic seder. In recent times, it has become a Jewish Arbor Day and ecological holiday. Join us for a humanistic celebration of trees and our natural environment. Music and song-leading will be provided by Ben Brussell. Please bring something to share in the way of tree fruits and nuts, and non-perishable item(s) for the food bank. Albany Community Center, Rms I and II.
