Tu B’Shevat: A Time of Learning & Celebration!

February 8, 2017

Tu B'shvat VegetablesMention the name “Tu B’Shevat” to anyone and the first thing that comes to their head may be playful and joyous tunes from ones childhood. Likewise, many of us have memories of tree planting ceremonies and the consumption of delicious dried fruit!

However, in Israel, this day isn’t just simply glossed over. The streets of Yerushalayim, and all over the country for that matter, are filled with people wishing one another a “Shabbat Shalom” and “Happy Tu B’Shevat!”

Indeed, from Rabbi Green’s enlightening class on Tu B’Shevat called, “Shevat Secrets: You are Like a Tree,” allowed us to discover the inner meaning of the day, as well as the entire month of Shevat.

In the spirit of Tu B’Shevat, which takes place on Shabbos this year, Rabbi Sharfman himself surprised every class with being able to learn about fruit and vegetable presentation and carving.

Not only did this experience add meaning to the Chag, but it gave us another opportunity to see how much Rabbi Sharfman cares about allowing us to taste every aspect of our Year in Israel!

Good Shabbos and Happy Tu B’Shevat 🙂
