Roots to Fruits: Romemu's Tu B'shvat Seder NYC

165 West 105th Street, Basement
Join Romemu for our annual Tu B'shvat Seder, an eco-cultural ritual of the Kabbalists. Led by Musical Director Basya Schechter and Rabbi Jessica Kate Meyer, journey through mystical teachings and the music of Rebbe Nachman of Bretslov through the four worlds with wine and special fruits. Master Storytellers Yitzhak Buxbaum and Carole Forman will offer a sweet spice to the evening by sharing from their Kabbalistic Tu B'shvat Seder. This will be a night of celebrating the roots, shoots, and branches of fruits of the intergenerational Romemu community.
Light Dinner will be served + 4 cups of wine + fruits. $20 Members, $25 Non-Members. Register here!
Tu BeShvat, the New Year of the Cosmic Tree, is the only holiday ordained by the kabbalists. At the seder we taste many different fruits, drink wine of different colors, hear mystical teachings and sing soulful melodies. The celebration anticipates the return of all humanity to the Garden of Eden, when we will eat, this time, fruit from the Tree of Life. Tu BeShvat is mystical, inclusive, and "green." Its theme is: One God, one humanity, one planet. Everyone is invited.
Yitzhak Buxbaum is the author of ten books of Jewish spirituality including A Person is Like a Tree: A Sourcebook for Tu BeShvat and The Light and Fire of the Baal Shem Tov.
