Musical Tu B'Shevat Seder Online

Virtual Program, Sunday, January 16 at 8:00 PM EST

In the depths of winter, when cold wind blows against bare branches, trees begin to look toward spring and, hidden beneath the surface, a new melody can be faintly heard. Hadar’s Rising Song Institute and the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History invite you to celebrate the New Year of the Trees by exploring the mystical world of Tu B’shevat through song! Led by Rebekka Goldsmith and Batya Levine, and featuring musicians Jessie Reagen Mann and Rabbi Micah Shapiro, this unique musical ritual weaves together traditional elements of the kabbalistic Tu B’shevat seder with modern sonic interpretations and prayers.
