Romemu Intergenerational Tu B’Shevat program

Sunday, January 24, 2021 11 Sh'vat 5781

9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Please join us for Yom Yarok (Green Day).
Open to all CEEBJ members

Please join Susan Cosden, RJE., Cantor Barash, Rabbi Barolsky, and the Romemu staff, for Susan’s favorite holiday of the year, Tu B’Shevat. Not familiar with Tu B’Shevat? It is the 15th day of the month of Shevat and the birthday of the trees. It is the Jewish environmental day/earth day/arbor day. Some of you might remember this day as the day when you purchased trees in Israel. Some of you might remember this day as the day you had a seder in your classroom that didn’t involve matzah but rather involved fruits, nuts (before we knew of nut allergies) and something that looked like chocolate but didn’t taste like it. (It was carob.) It is a holiday when we celebrate the various kinds of fruits from trees and all the other gifts trees give us. It is one of the many holidays that connects us to the land of Israel.

This year, we invite all of our Romemu learners, all of their parents, all of their grandparents, and all CEEBJ members, to join us to explore the connection between Tu B’Shevat and our current lifelong learning middah (value) – g’vurah (courage). We encourage everyone to wear yarok (green) for Yom Yarok or you might want to wear a green shirt and brown pants to dress up as an eitz (a tree). Whatever you do, dress comfortably. 

Come prepared to sing, do movement, share, and create. You might want to have paper and colored pencils/crayons/markers with you. In addition, we ask everyone who is participating to either purchase, if you do not have at home already, or pick up from CEEBJ this Wednesday - Friday, seed paper

If you would like to learn more about this program or have any questions about this program, please contact Susan Cosden at or 973-917-9294. 

As this program will include our Romemu learners, this program will only take place on Zoom.
