New Year for the Trees

Thursday, 28 January, 2010 - 3:02 pm

 tree - writing.jpgWe are in the last line before the holiday of Tu bishvat, the new Year for the Trees, (here for greek) coming out this year Shabbat 15 Shvat – Friday evening January 29 and Saturday January 30, 2010.

 
Tomorrow evening we’re joining the international celebration of “One Shabbat, One world”. Tens of thousands of Jews from all across the globe are coming together to eat, drink, relax and celebrate a Shabbat dedicated to universal peace and harmony...  And we will participate from Athens!! Part of the meal will be dedicated to the Seder Tu Bishvat according to Kabbalah, eating various fruits, drinking different colored wine, and learning about their various symbolisms.
 
This is not all! Tu Bishvat is an excellent occasion for us to reflect on the environment, think about where we stand and what additional step we can do to help. Tu Bishvat is traditionally a time of planting trees, and we thought, especially after the devastation caused by the fire forests last summer, that it would be a great occasion to go and plant trees to reforest those areas.
 
Last but not least, we will visit the old age home Resteion, eat traditional fruits, and celebrate there Tu Bishavat as well!
 
Join us for one or all of the events!!! And have a great Tu Bishvat!!
