Tu B'Shvat, is one of four “new years” specified in the Talmud. It is designated as the “new year of trees.” This time is significant to determine the beginning of the annual growth cycle used to decide which produce is part of which year, especially as it relates to taking tithe, and more specifically, the tithe from fruit of the tree. In addition, many customs have evolved over the years to highlight this connection to the land of Israel in certain ways, including through certain foods.
Sephardic Jews celebrate Frutikas with a home ceremony that also has many variations in practice, reflecting a wide perspective of emphasis. We have included the Levantine, Ladino-speaking community’s ceremony in ours to reflect traditions of many Sephardic Jews.
Join us as we celebrate the Sephardic Tradtions of Frutikas and celebrate Tu'Bshvat. Partnering with the Seattle Sephardic Network, we will be led in the traditions and celebrations by Seattle's own Sephardic community. This will be an amazing night! Please be sure to register below!
