Feb 4 – CAARI TuBshvat Celebration

Part 2 of Feb 4

Back from the Forest – time to decorate for the TuBshvat Party.  Diane organized the ‘committee’ and work they did – made they room very festive!!

From Rosalie’s Report –   That night, erev (evening) Tu b’Shvat (Jewish Arbor Day), we had a superb Seder and party. The Seder was led by Paul and Marion, which  began with the traditional kiddishes and blessings.    As in previous years, we had a wonderful keyboard player who played appropriate music as we read the story of the holiday and drank wine and ate dried fruits…..After the reading, we sang and danced….to Israeli, American, Yiddish, and even some Latin music……and drank more wine….and had awesome desserts….and it seemed that everyone had a really special, happy time.
