Tickle Your Senses at Tu B’Shvat

fruit and wineDismantled, dissected, unraveled, broken down into parts… That’s what’s happening to the Tu B’Shvat seder in Boulder this year. No sitting around a table, no reading from a haggadah, or listening to a single presenter.

Instead, join us for Tu B’Shvat Deconstructed: Boulder’s Community-Wide Celebration! It will be an interactive evening celebrating the new year of the trees. We’ll kick it off with some dynamic storytelling, then visit hands-on stations where you can learn about and sample the seven species of Israel, taste a new exotic fruit (a Tu B’Shvat tradition), and create your own unique mix of red and white grape juice and even smash the grapes yourself!
