Tu B’Shvat Seder

On February 5, we observe Tu B'Shvat with a joyous seder to honor and support Suzanne Gladney and Alan Lubert’s work with the Migrant Farmworkers Assistance Fund. MFAF helps provide food, health care, child care, school enrollment and other services to the migrant-farmworker community near Lexington, Missouri. Please put Sunday, February 5, on your calendar! 
Tu B'Shvat (the 15th day, tu, of the Hebrew month of Shvat) is known as the birthday of the trees and is connected to Israel’s agricultural cycle. It particularly celebrates fruit trees — apropos, given that local migrant farmworkers work in apple and peach orchards. 
The Tu B'Shvat haggadah extols nature and all that comes with the planting season. Instead of the traditional Passover seder plate, three platters of different fruits and nuts are assembled. A vegetarian dinner will be served after the brief seder, and we will hear from a young woman whose life has been directly and positively affected by MFAF.
In addition, we hope this event will raise funds for the organization. Rabbi Alpert will conduct the Seder and our very own Brian Greenwald will Emcee.
