Seder slated for Jan. 26

Congregation B’nai Harim at the Nevada County Jewish Community Center (NCJCC) is hosting a special Tu B’shvat Seder at 7 p.m. on Saturday, January 26. This event will be a dessert potluck. It will be held at the NCJCC, located at 506 Walsh St. in Grass Valley.

Tu B’shvat is the Jewish New Year for trees and is also known as the birthday of trees. On this day, Jews eat foods that come from trees, such as fruit and nuts. It is also customary to eat food that is found in Israel, such as olives, figs, dates, raisins, grapes, almonds, pomegranates, carob and honey. The holiday is often celebrated by donating money to the Jewish National Fund (JNF), an organization that plants trees in Israel. In modern times, this holiday has been connected to environmental awareness.

Admission to the Seder is free, however reservations are required as limited space is available. Please bring your favorite dessert to share at this potluck style Seder.

For reservations please call (530) 346-2925. Please be sure to leave your name and phone number so that we may contact you if necessary.
