Berkeley farm to host Tu BShevat seder

Tu B’Shevat, or the “new year for trees,” will be celebrated with an adults-only seder in Berkeley on Feb. 7.

Educators from Hazon and Urban Adamah, the Jewish farm and education center in west Berkeley, will lead attendees in a discussion about the meaning of the winter holiday — a favorite of Jewish mystics — which celebrates the connection between the spirit, body and the Earth. The 7 p.m. seder will include blessings, songs and a locally sourced, organic vegetarian dinner.

The seder is co-sponsored by Hazon, Urban Adamah, Jewish Federation of the East Bay, Wilderness Torah, JCC of the East Bay, Congregation Beth El and EcoJews of the Bay.

Urban Adamah is located at 1050 Parker St. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, plus a can of food for a food bank donation. For information or to register, visit
