Tu B'Shevat is the "birthday of the trees." You can learn about its origins on Some Jews have seders on this date that focus on nuts and fruits from trees.

Celebrate Tu B'Shavat and Contribute to 
Our Temple's Tree of Life

Even in the midst of winter, the Tu B'Shevat holiday foretells the promise of spring as we celebrate agricultural renewal and look forward to new growth. It is a day for looking forward with optimism to brighter, greener times just ahead.

In this way, while Tu B’shevat is focused on trees, it is in fact a day to celebrate the renewal of life in general. At Temple Beth Shalom, we have our own Tree of Life. On the wall of our lobby hangs a Tree of Life which honors s'machot, joyous sacred moments and relationships within our temple family.  Just as trees are nourished in various ways, so is our congregation. As we move forward with optimism to the coming days of renewal and growth for our temple, financial support of our Tree of Life is one way to support and nourish our community.

Thank you for sharing in providing financial sustenance along with the blessing of your presence in the temple family.
