Wednesday, January 19, 7:00 pm – Celebrating Tu B’Shvat: New Year for Trees

Everyone is invited to Mount Auburn Cemetery on Wednesday, January 19 beginning at 7 pm to participate in this annual birthday of the trees during which we will explore the significance of trees and our relationships with them—in the world, in Jewish tradition, and in the history of Mount Auburn Cemetery. Natasha Nataniela Shabat, a Biblical Hebrew Teacher, will lead this interactive celebration in Bigelow Chapel. Please bring a poem or writing that reflects your own appreciation of trees; readings will also be provided. This celebration will also include traditional Tu B’Shvat nuts, fruits, and juice. Limited enrollment; preregistration required.
Fee: $5 members; $10 non-members. Log on to to register, or for more information.
