Tu Bishvat Seder: Celebrating the Gifts of our Earth

Young and old are invited to journey together through the four worlds of body, heart, mind, and spirit as we celebrate our connection to the earth and to one another.  We will share poetry, stories, ritual, and song as we stop along the way to give thanks and delight in the fruits of the tree and the vine. The Tu Bishvat seder is an opportunity to more fully appreciate the precious gifts with which we are blessed and to cultivate gratitude for the world in which we dwell.

Event Date: 
Saturday, February 7, 2015 - 4:30pm - 6:00pm

Adult Benei Mitzvah Class

We are beginning a group to support individuals on a journey of learning and deepening connection to Jewish tradition. If you were not called to the Torah as a bar or bat mitzvah when you were younger and are interested in exploring it now, please join us. In the context of this community of fellow travelers, each person will study and practice for several months, culminating in a ritual next year in which each member of the group chants from the Torah and shares some of his or her learning.

Society for Refined Awareness (aka Conscious Community)

On the heels of the adult ed series from the fall, these sessions will follow the instruction of the Piaseczna Rebbe to convene a "Society for Refined Awareness" or a "Society for Positive Mindfulness," or a "Conscious Community." However we translate Venei Mahshavah Tovah, the goal of our time will be the cultivation of greater awareness and more sincere engagement with our lives. Our foundation will be the group that forms as we join in this sacred task.
