Rabbi Jason R. Levine on Tu B'shevat

"There's so many ways to celebrate Tu B'shevat... Gather in nature with your family and friends, enjoy God's beauty. Have a seder to enjoy these delicious treats with family and friends. Build a garden, clean out a park, or engage in political work to make the world good, safe, and healthy for all." - Rabbi Jason R. Levine

Please join us for a day of worship, learning, and action at our Tzedek Shabbaton on Saturday, February 9 from 9:15 AM - 4:00 PM. In the spirit of our learning theme Ma’asei V’reisheet/Acts of Creation, we are re-envisioning the tikkun olam work of our congregation. We will devote an entire day – a Shabbaton – to the theme of Tzedek, tzedek, tirdof, “Justice, justice, you will pursue" (Deuteronomy 16:20). From Torah study in the morning to Havdallah in the afternoon, we will come together for a day of learning, worship, and action all focused on justice. Read Rabbi Ruth A. Zlotnick's description of "tzedek" here.

We will be serving lunch at this event. While there will not be a charge to attend the Shabbaton, we need you to sign up for lunch, so we can be sure to order enough food.
