This is a time of year where we celebrate the Jewish holiday and tradition of honoring trees. Specifically, fruit bearing trees, who we are commanded to allow three years to root before indulging in their harvest.
Tu B’shevat is a tree’s ‘birthday,’ their time marker and coming of age as a bearer of fruit. How are we connected to this rhetoric today, in regards to respecting or disrespecting our sources of food? How is food commodification changing our to relationship that respect?
Join us in a Tu B’shevat Food Justice Seder to connect across faith backgrounds and as young people involved in justice work. This is potluck stye with a twist: bring a dish that incorporates one of the Seven Species associated with this holiday. Space is limited, so please RSVP and sign up for your key ingredient: http://goo.gl/forms/XZKEo57j9W
We look forward to having you and making connections over this holiday feast.
