Temple Beth David Hosts “New Year of Trees” Tu B’Shevat Seder
Temple Beth David of the South Shore in Canton, Mass., will host a special Tu B’Shevat Seder on Sunday, February 9, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Tu B’Shevat marks the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. It is celebrated by eating some of the special fruits of the region, including grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. It is also recognized as an environmental awareness day, with trees often planted in recognition of our role as stewards of the earth. As a part of our Seder we will be planting parsley seeds, which can be taken home. The parsley will be ready for harvest by Passover, where it plays a major role in the festive Passover seder.
The Tu B’Shevat seder celebration is free and open to the public. RSVPs are requested to [email protected].
Temple Beth David is located at 1060 Randolph St., Canton, MA
