For People are like Trees of the Field: Tu BiSh'vat Seder

The Hebrew phrase כי האדם עץ השדה – “for people are like trees of the field” – is a popular notion in contemporary Israeli culture. Frequently invoked by environmentalists, used by artists, and making its way into Tu BiSh'vat celebrations, it speaks of the close kinship between people and trees.

Join our Sh’lichah Hagar and explore this idea through the centuries-old tradition of a Tu BiSh'vat Seder.

This will require a bit of preparation (fruits, wine/grape juice, etc.),

  1. White wine/grape juice
  2. Red wine/grape juice
  3.  One fruit of each of these three groups:
  • fruits or nuts with an inedible outer shell and an edible inner core, like almond, banana, coconut, durian, grapefruit, guava, hazelnut, orange, papaya, passion fruit, pecan, persimmon, pineapple, pistachio, pomegranate, pomelo, sabra or walnut.
  •  fruits with edible outer flesh and inedible cores, like apricot, avocado, cherry, date, mango, nectarine, olive, peach and plum. 
  • fruits which are edible throughout. These fruits may be eaten entirely and include: blackberry, blueberry, carob, fig, grape, kiwi, kumquat, raspberry, star fruit and strawberry.
