Tu Bishvat Seder with My Jewish Learning

Hosted By: My Jewish Learning

The holiday of Tu Bishvat, sometimes called the ‘New Year of the Trees,’ touches on so many of the themes on our minds and hearts this year: hope in a time of darkness, ecological sustainability, and the cycles of nature.

Join My Jewish Learning with Kohenet Shamirah Chandler and Rabbi Dr. Jay Michaelson via Zoom for an interactive Tu Bishvat Seder that you can participate in from home.

Below you will find the foods and drinks to have on hand, though you can also participate without them.

Wine/Grape Juice: Red grape juice or red wine, and white grape juice or white wine. These will be blended in various combinations at the Seder.

Fruits/Nuts: Part of the Tu Bishvat Seder involves eating different kinds of fruits to symbolize the ecological and emotional cycles of time. We encourage you to have on hand some fruits from each of these categories (one per category is enough):

A: Tree fruits with inedible shells or peels, such as bananas, peanuts, almonds, or walnuts.

B: Tree fruits with a hard pit such as olives, dates, apricots, or cherries.

C: Fruits we eat whole such as figs or berries.
