Tu B’shevat with SAC
January 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Tu B’shevat gets its name from the date on which the holiday occurs, the 15th of the month of Shevat. A minor Jewish holiday, it is often referred to as the new year (or “birthday”) of the trees. The holiday originated in the Talmud, and was based on the date chosen for calculating the agricultural cycle of taking tithes from the produce of the trees, which were brought as first-fruit offerings to the Temple in Jerusalem.
And for this holiday SAC is inviting TBE Family and Friends to join SAC in the lower parking lot of TBE on Sunday, January 31, 2021 at 1:00PM. There will be a farmer’s truck with 2/900 pound pallets of apples waiting for us. We will put these apples into 10 pound bags. It should take us about 1½ hours to complete. Then these bags will be picked up and delivered to various locations needing food to “end hunger”.
This is a great Mitzvah project you and SAC can accomplish for TBE and the Society of St. Andrews to help “END HUNGER”. To sign up for this please register with this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4faeac22a3fdc16-tubshevat.
