Interested in hosting a Tu Bishvat seder (a structured meal inspired by the Passover seder)? My Jewish Learning has one sample ceremony here. However, a number of Tu Bishvat Haggadahs (Haggadot is the Hebrew plural) are available for free online, most as downloadable PDFs. Know of a great one that we missed?
