Connection to Self, One-Another, Earth and Spirit

Inspiration Throughout the Year

Living Tree events are opportunities to explore connection unplugged from the internet and plugged into place, story, the sweat of work done, conversations over meals and art arising from interactions. We create collaborations, programs and paradigms of living together that counteract the increasing speed and cultural isolation arising from modern hyper-technological society.

Each Living Tree Jewish event carries with it a spiritual gift, one that gives us inspiration throughout the entire year. This gift is the special essence of the event. Rabbi Sholom Noach Brezovsky, in Nesivos Shalom (Vol. II, p. 189), teaches us that each one of these meeting points has its own spiritual energy that offers us a unique opportunity for growth at that time. Our festivals follow the rhythm of the Hebrew calendar, mark our communal times together and are an opportunity to reincorporate the essence of the festival into our lives and connect around universal parts of our shared humanity no matter what creed, background or foundational stories you come from.

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, for directions, and we need to know who is coming! Suggested donation: $18 Read More
