How some are using Livnot’s Seder Companion in their Tu B’Shvat celebrations…

Tu B'Shvat Laya Firestone Seghi“We had a Rosh Chodesh gathering for our new moon in Shvat. I shared some of the materials from the Livnot Companion and everyone enjoyed reflecting on the spiritual qualities of the Sheva Minim.” – Laya Firestone Seghi, Hollywood, FL

 

“I had the good fortune to visit Livnot while on a guided tour of Tzfat in December. Seeing your Tu B’Shevat booklet, led me to initiate the idea of doing a Seder at my shul this year!” -Mindy Sager Dickler, Baltimore, MD

 

Our sister city, West Palm Beach, Florida held a community wide Tu B’Shvat celebration inspired by their connection to Livnot U’Lehibanot and to Tzfat. They planted trees, toured a farm, and explored the spirituality of the natural world:

“Through our celebrations of TuB’Shvat, Judaism teaches us to appreciate the beauty, essence, sanctity and spirituality of all life, even trees and fruits, and not to regard trees as just factories of wood and fruits that we can use. We learn that trees and fruits have things to teach us about our Judaism which connect us to our heritage. For example, trees take the resources and physical strength of the earth and make them reach up to the heavens, similar to our own spiritual mission.We learn the importance of maintaining our deep roots in order to be able to grow, blossom and produce fruit.” – Joel Passick, West Palm Beach, FL
