Two Temple Tu B'shvat Seder

| Temple Israel | Temple Hesed | Jewish Federation NEPA | Michael Weinberg Photography |
On Sunday, February 12, the festive Jewish holiday, Tu B'shevat, was celebrated in Sranton PA in glorious style, as two Scranton temples, Temple Israel (conservative) and Temple Hesed (reform) brought their respective congegations together, in peace, harmony and friendship to observe a beautifully spiritual and lively Tu B'shvat Seder. Gallery sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Photos by Michael Weinberg Photography of Scranton and Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania.

About Tu B'Shevat: On Tu B'Shevat we celebrate a New Year for the Trees, rejoicing in the fruit of the tree and the fruit of the vine, celebrating the splendid, abundant gifts of the natural world which give our senses delight and our bodies life. Tu B'Shevat marks the beginning of spring in Israel. Sustaining rains are at the peak of their power and the world responds, brimming with buds of fragrant life. To mark this moment, school children plant trees. Often these trees have been provided by the contributions of Jewish students abroad through the good offices of the Jewish National Fund. For Jews outside of Israel, Tu B'Shevat is a celebration of the renewal of vision and awareness, a celebration of connections and connectedness--to our own inner-selves, to the social world of human beings, and to the natural world and its Source.
