Tu B’shvat in Golden Gate Park
Join Reboot and Save the Redwoods League as we celebrate Tu B’Shvat in Golden Gate Park on January 28, 2018 at 2 p.m.
Tu B’Shvat is our day to celebrate the trees and the work we must do to keep our planet green and healthy for generations to come. Tu B’Shevat in the Park will reimagine the Tu B’Shvat ritual and inspire us to renew our community effort to plant trees for the future.

Synagogue Tree Planting
With a little help from our friends at Friends of the Urban Forest, we will be planting three additional trees on the sidewalks outside our synagogue. The planting coincides with Tu b’Shvat – it will be on January 31 between 9 am and 12 noon. Please contact the synagogue office if you are able to participate in this festive, earthy event.
Tu B’shvat Seder
Happy New Year . . . for the trees that is! Tu B’shvat is the day on the Jewish calendar dedicated to the care, appreciation and love of nature and the environment. Its rituals are a spiritual way to connect to the rhythm of the Earth and her seasons. The most popular ritual of this 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shvat is a seder. The seder is meant to elevate the spirit, as participants ascend four mystical levels through foods and their blessings. Each helps renew the flow in the Universe and in each of us. While the holiday falls this year on the evening of Tuesday, January 30, and the day of Wednesday, January 31st, we will hold a community seder after Shabbat services on February 3 at 12:30pm.
The Tu B’shvat Seder is free and all are welcome.
