Shireinu News and Events:

Our Shireinu observance of Tu B'shvat is a type of seder where we talk about the 3 types of fruits and nuts. Similar to the Passover seder, there will be 4 cups of wine representing the four seasons.  There are many mystical connections between Tu B'shvat and the individual.  Join us Friday February 2.  Please bring non-perishable food items for Tu B'shvat

"On Tu B'Shvat, we celebrate the "New Year of the Trees." This holiday, which falls on the 15th day (tu) of the Hebrew month of Sh'vat, is also known as the birthday of the trees. We say "Happy birthday" and "Happy new year" to the trees sprouting up after winter and to the flowers beginning to bud in eager anticipation of the spring.
"God took Adam around to see the trees of the Garden of Eden, which included the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge, and God said to Adam, 'Behold My work. All this I create for you. Take care you do not destroy it, for if you do, there is no one left to repair it."
Tu B'Shvat reminds us: We have but one world, and we are its only stewards. We must do all we can to safeguard it and all of its precious resources as well. May Tu B'Shvat inspire us all to use our hands and our hearts to make this world a better, more sustainable, and more beautiful place."  Rabbi Sara Y. Sapadin

Planning: It has been our experience, even this past December, that we plan and God laughs and we have to cancel our services.  Since the weather is so unpredictable, Shireinu has scaled back some of our programming so we don't have to be worrying or wondering. 
Our Spring schedule will be up on our website very soon. 

Exciting Mitzvah Event: We had a wonderful Hanukah celebration at the EAT (Everyone At the Table) Cafe in Philadelphia.  14 of us filled up the back section of the restaurant.  The food was very good and it was a great experience supporting this important cafe.  We will visit again in the Spring.
