Kol Ami: The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community
Kol Ami's Tu BiShvat seder will take place on Sunday Jan. 20, 2019, from 5-6:30 pm. Please join us for this low-key and nature-centric holiday that reminds Jews of our connection to the earth and our role as caretakers of the environment.
This holiday is also known as Rosh HaShanah La'Ilanot, the new year of the trees.
No prior familiarity with these festivities is required to celebrate. All you need to do is arrive ready to eat different types of fruits and nuts and sip grape juice. There will be lots of singing, accompanied by several of our community's wonderful musicians. Rabbi Gilah will lead the seder. We will also plant parsley seeds that hopefully will sprout in time to yield some of the karpas, or greens, we will eat during Passover.
This is an informal celebration but please take a moment if you plan to come to RSVP using this evite link because we'll need a headcount: http://evite.me/A2Aacxsdfm
Kindly indicate below which items you will bring and whether you can help with setting up, cleaning up or with other tasks. There so many simple items to bring and activities to do that many of us will be signing up for more than one thing. If your plans change, be sure to update this list or tell Emily Schwartz Greco, [email protected], who is coordinating this event. In addition, please let her know if you have questions or suggestions and tell her about nut or other relevant allergies we need to be aware of.
5:00pm - 6:30pm EST
