About the event

Seder will be led by Kohenet Naomi Azriel and Rising Rabbi Ariel Hendelman

You are invited to a full moon fruit seder in the center of the orchard. The orchard is the place of love and wholeness; the place where we feel connected to our truest nature and to all of creation, including the more-than-human world. The trees have much to teach us about rooting in and rising up, about the quiet stillness of winter and the preparation to bear fruit in the spring.

We will gather together for an hour and a half to journey through the Kabbalistic four worlds, from Asiyah, the world of body and doing, all the way up to Atzilut, the world of emanation & intuition. These worlds exist within us and all around us. Utilizing teachings from the Jewish Mystical tradition, the practice of chant to enter through the gates, and a beautiful Tu B’Shevat Seder Companion, we will deepen into this time in our sacred calendar.

What is included:

1. A beautiful Tu B’Shevat Seder Companion that you can refer to for years to come.

2. A 1.5 hour experiential + mystical seder experience

3. Chanting as a practice & a portal to enter into each of the four worlds.

4. Deeper connection with the more-than-human world.

5. Teachings from the Jewish Mystical tradition about this time in our sacred lunar calendar.

Items you will need: (For the fruits try to find a fruit you have yet to eat this year!)

1. Fruit with an inedible outside, edible inside {banana, almond, pomegranate, oranges}

2. Fruit with an edible outside, inedible inside {peach, cherry, olive, date}

3. Fruit that is fully edible fruit [blueberries, raspberries, figs}

4. Delightful scents {essential oil, ceder, rose water}

5. Bottle of white wine or grape juice

6. Bottle of red wine or grape juice

We encourage you to set your table as if it is an altar & dress like you are at a banquet feast.

Everyone is invited to this seder, whether you are Jewish or not or have attended a seder before or not! If you feel called to attend then we welcome you with open arms!

Hosting a Tu'bshvat seder is a truly magical experience, and if you have never hosted one before here are Naomi's go-to tips for making it truly memorable.

Edibles: It's all about the fruit and nuts! My go-to's to make sure I have all my worlds covered are: Almonds, Dates and Figs. These are especially easy since they can be found in a bulk section or ordered dried online.

Visuals: If you have the energy and monetary funds, placing many types of fruit from the same world on platters and baskets is a sure way to make sure you are eating with our eyes first. Sprinkle a few dried rose buds or fresh flower petals over the fruit or plate and you have the most inviting plate of fruit.

Decor: I always opt for sensual and rich colors and textures for Tu'bshvat. For a super easy and effective tabletop: Find some fun scarves and lay them on your table. Take some of your house plants and decorate the table with them in-between and next to your fruit platters/baskets. Scatter nuts like almonds and pistachios on the table in bunches...(like you just threw them down, but really you placed them delicately)
