Join Rabbi Dan and Rabbi Yakirah in a special Shabbat program celebrating the birth of trees. Included in the Shabbat service will be a Tu B’Shevat Seder, an experiential way to enjoy the symbolism of this special holiday. To enjoy the evening more, if you can have available some fruit, nuts and wine or juice to partake during the service. This is optional, of course, but it will be a fun way to experience the holiday. Specifically, something that has an outer shell that you eat the inside (like bananas, oranges, almonds or peanuts) and something that has a pit or seed in which you eat the outside (like an avocado, apple or pear), and something in which you eat the whole fruit (like strawberries or grapes).

“Dr. Seuss Goes to War and Before” with historian and collector Gregg Philipson
Tuesday, January 26 at Noon
Temple Beth Torah’s Lunch and Learn favorite, Gregg Philipson, returns to share his knowledge with items from “The Gregg and Michelle Philipson Collection and Archive” as he discusses the Dr. Seuss you may not know.
We all know of Theodore Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) as the author of numerous children’s books including “The Cat in the Hat,” but what may surprise you is the material he produced during WWII as a Major in the U.S. Army and as a political cartoonist during the war. His early commercial art for Esso Oil and other companies will amaze you!!
Join us for an exciting talk guaranteed to be an eye opener for many!
