Events & Festivals
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.
