Join Urban Adamah on their farm for an evening of Tu B’Shvat exploration as we bring ancient rituals to life through story, song, blessing, and great local food!
The Jewish mystics loved this holiday, the day in midwinter when the sap begins to rise in the trees. On this day, the bodily sefirot (basically, the Jewish chakras – or for chemistry fans, the periodic table of spiritual elements) would open, allowing Divine light to energize and renew our connection to our bodies and the earth. How exactly did this happen?
It was all about a mysterious combination of fruit, wine and chocolate. OK, they didn’t have chocolate. But we will.
