3-5pm, Family TuB’Shevat celebration with JNF. Free event. Crafts, planting parsley seed, music, snacks- RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
When the Jews were exiled from the land of Israel and lived in Diaspora , Tu B'shevat had a new meaning – it was a way to keep connection with the Land
of Israel. It became a mitzvah (commandment) to eat special fruits at this day – dates, figs, grapes, carob which associated with Israel. There is
a Tu B'Shevat ceder modeled after Passover Seder. In modern Israel it is custom for children to plant trees on Tu B'Shevat and also to sing songs and
prayers for this event.
