Join us for Thoughts Around the Table, series of meetings in which we will talk about different approaches for traditions and values. This upcoming meeting will be held in English and will be about Tu BiShvat and growing.

In Tu BiShvat we celebrate nature and growing.  Growing is about nurturing, planting and care - is it true for plants as for human? Is it all about planting seeds and nurture them? Is there any choice for the seed to become better or worse later in its life? Let's talk about planting, nature and human being. 

Avi West will talk with us about the wisdom of the trees, and will shed light on the Jewish attitude towards hope, parenting and our role as stewards of the earth. Tamar Pinto will talk about punishment vs. consequences. The evening will be moderated by Iris Aharonovitch and Amir Neeman.
