About the Event

Did you know that Tu Bishvat was an ancient celebration in Sumer, in the time of Avraham Avinu? 

Embark on a journey exploring the roots of Tu Bishvat, tracing it back to ancient Sumer during Avraham Avinu's time. Discover intriguing connections with the Jewish holidays, particularly the winter celebrations: Tu Bishvat, the fast of 10th Tevet, Hanukkah, and Purim. These events unfold against historical backdrops like the Persian Empire and the Ptolemaic-Egyptian Greeks. Delve into the philosophical significance of these holidays, unraveling their role in shaping Jewish identity. Inspired by Mark Helprin's "A Winter’s Tale," this tour focuses on key ideas from the Second Temple period, providing unique insights into the Nation of Israel's development. Join us in preparing for Passover as we reflect on the profound journey toward our nation's rebirth.
