Tu BeShvat Seder

Join us for our annual TuBeshvat Seder on January 26, 2013 at 6 pm. 

 There will be a potluck dinner and havdallah.

I will be co-leading the seder and activities with environmental educator, Nora Saks:

Nora Saks is a relatively new Mainer, having relocated to Portland in early 2011 for work. However, she feels as if Maine has always been her home in her heart. Raised in Rockville, MD, Nora then fled the DC area and attended the University of Toronto. Partway through college, she developed a serious interest in healthy food and has spent the majority of the last 7 years growing food on organic farms in the U.S. and Canada, and teaching kids and adults how to grow it, prepare it and share it through community education programs at food and farm-based non-profits. She is currently studying massage therapy at the New Hampshire Institute for Therapeutic Arts and looks forward to one day combining bodywork with a cooperative farming venture.  Nora is always excited about new ways to look at and practice Judaism in a more earth-centered and inclusive way.
