Rosh Chodesh Gathering

January 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Hope you can join us for the Rosh Chodesh Shevat gathering, which will be a special WOMEN’S TU B’SHEVAT SEDER!

WHEN
Sunday, January 6 (7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.)

WHERE
Liz McCallum’s home (contact the office for the address)

WHAT WE’LL DO
We will read inspiring passages and blessings and sample symbolic foods from trees (e.g., pomegranate, figs, dates, nuts, olives, berries, grapes).  Tu B’Shevat, named for the 15th day of Shevat, is the New Year of the Trees and is a time to celebrate trees, nature, and our connection with Earth.

TU B’SHEVAT SEDER – A QUICK BACKGROUND
“In the 16th century, Kabbalists, the Jewish mystics, created this seder with songs, readings, wine and fruits.  Like the Passover seder, this one uses experiential learning, four cups of wine, and special foods.  Each cup of wine represents different aspects of the fruit tree and of ourselves.  As the seder progresses, we change the color of the wine in the cups (like the changing of the seasons) from the whiteness of winter to the fullness of spring.” –From PJ Library (www.pjlibrary.org)

WHAT TO BRING
Just bring yourself!  Bring a friend, too!

PLEASE RSVP
Please RSVP to templeemanuel@templeemanuelpgh.org or 412.279.7600 so that we can plan accordingly.

QUESTIONS?
Please feel free to contact Lisa Dvorin at lisadvorin@comcast.net.

NEXT ROSH CHODESH – FEBRUARY 10
The Rosh Chodesh Adar Gathering will be on Sunday, February 10 (7:00 to 9:00 p.m.) at the home of Stacy Tafeen, and the topic will be Creating Joy in our Lives.

ABOUT ROSH CHODESH
The Rosh Chodesh gatherings will be stand-alone events, so this is not a group to join.  Each gathering will have a positive and encouraging environment, and women of all ages and levels of Jewish knowledge and experience are welcome.  It won’t be the same without you, so please RSVP to templeemanuel@templeemanuelpgh.org or 412.279.7600.  And if anyone is interested, there will be opportunities to host and/or plan future gatherings.  If you have questions or ideas, please contact Lisa Dvorin at lisadvorin@comcast.netAlso, if you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know.
