Tu B’Shevat Celebration for the Trees – Feb 9 2020

Tu B'Shevat Celebration for the Trees! Deep in the winter quiet, the ever intuitive Jewish calendar brings us a celebration of possibilities and abundance in honor of The Tree of Life. Tu B'Shvat celebrates, the birthday of the trees, and has become a modern Jewish Earth Day! In the lunar month of Shvat, we come together: to pause, to bless, to enjoy the fruits of our beautiful earth and to recommit ourselves to actions that steward this world we share with our friends the trees. All are welcome, for two separate programs, as we honor the trees, play in the snow, drink Hemlock tea, share stories, and snow shoe in the forest. Family program for families with young children led by Melanie Grubman We will play games and share a “kid-friendly” ritual that deepens our gratitude for the land and revitalizes our commitment toward ecology. Many activities will be outside in the field, but the house will be open for warming up in. And we will move indoors for cake and hot chocolate since temperatures predicted to be a high of 10 degrees. Dress warm and don't let the weather keep you from this nurturing community event. Adults Snow Shoe in the woods led by Kohenet Sephirah Stacey Oshkello Together we will snow shoe in the woods and engage in mindfulness activities that connect us to each other, the seasonal holiday, and the earth. As we journey through the four worlds of Jewish mysticism we will learn from the natural wonders around us and the teachings that dwell within. For both programs bring: sleds, snow toys, layers, snow pants, snow boots, and a happy smile. Adult Program: bring your own snow shoes, snow pants, mittens, hat, and layers Please RSVP to info@livingtreealliance.com, for directions, and we need to know who is coming!
