Shivat HaMinim (Seven Species) Tasting and Soiree for Tu B’Shevat (Zoom)
Seven is not just for counting days in Jewish tradition! It is the number of species that we associate with the land of Israel. They are listed in the Torah. And since Tu B’Shevat is here (Thursday, Jan. 28), which is the holiday of the trees and a link to being rooted in the holy land, we will hold a ZOOM-based seven species tasting that will highlight unique Israeli products! Reserve your basket of plenty that features delicacies made from: dates, figs, olives, wheat, barley, pomegranate, and grapes. They will all come packaged and prepared in a way you may or may not expect! Rabbi Bolton and Sigal will host this interactive on-line social-holiday event. We’ll hear from a representative of Leket, the organization who recovers fruits of the tree and harvest of the field and delivers them to soup kitchens in Israel. And we will break out to discuss our favorite Israeli food experiences (either eaten locally or experienced there). Trees will get their due, as well, as we celebrate the New Year of Trees as a community.
