Boulder JCC Hosting Tu B’shevat Seder: Of the Earth

Tu B’Shevat is one of the four “New Years” in the Jewish Calendar. Quite literally, the 15th of the Hebrew month Shevat celebrates the New Year of the Trees. This year we invite the community to experience a Tu B’Shevat seder that explores what trees, forests, and eco-systems teach us as earthlings about our consumption, waste, and economy! Jamie Harkins, of The City of Boulder’s Circular Economy Team, will present the local work they are doing that is making a huge impact. Additionally, we will root our learnings in Jewish tradition through ritual and text exploration with Rabbi Charna Rosenholtz.

A Tu B’Shvat seder, or “order,” is a festive experience where we celebrate tree fruits and share together in enjoying their offerings. Our seder will be in person at the Boulder JCC and include tree fruits, wine/grape juice, and hearty vegetarian soup. This event is geared toward adults and everyone 12 years and older. 

Co-sponsored by Congregation Bonai Shalom, Congregation Har Hashem, Congregation Nevei Kodesh, Moishe House Boulder, Repair the World,, and Tuv Ha’aretz.

Monday, February 6 | 6:30 – 8:30 pm | $25 (up to 5 days before the event), $30; pre-registration required, register here
