Judaism at Home in Seattle: Ashkenazi and Sephardi Traditions for the New Year of the Trees

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In our homes, opportunities to engage Jewishly are in every corner. From bedtime blessings to doorpost marking, we are more present to our days when we participate in Jewish rituals, new and ancient. At holiday time, beyond celebrating communally, the ways we bring Jewish festivities into our homes is invaluable. In this session, we'll use the upcoming holiday of the trees and nature, Tu B’Shevat, to demonstrate how it is possible to “do Jewish” at home. Experience the celebratory Sephardic practice of “Fruticas,” and join in breaking down perceived barriers to discover a wealth of resources—for Tu B’Shevat and beyond. All experience levels and backgrounds welcome!
