Sunday School Class & Tu B’Shevat Celebration

February 2, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

(Family Event, 11:00 am)

Please join us for our IL Peretz Community Tu B’Shvat (zero waste) Seder, Sunday February 2, 2020 at Rutgers Prep. We will have environmental and social action activities at 10 am followed by Tu B’Shvat Seder at 11 am. Singing, eating, and social action celebrating the environment and “The New Year of Trees” – Tu B’Shvat. This is a family event and all are invited to attend!

Please RSVP via e-mail to Stephanie Field or through Facebook.

Tu B’Shvat is known as The New Year for Trees. What a wonderful way to honor the true meaning of this holiday by minimizing the amount we throw away when it is over. Environmental issues and ways to make a difference for the planet have never been more important, and this holiday provides us with an unique opportunity to set a tone for our school, our students, and community as a whole.

The idea here is to once again create a sustainable Seder, one in which we really make an effort to reduce our waste, pay attention to how much we use, and the ways we can begin to make greater changes for the benefit of the earth. With a little effort and a lot of willingness to be slightly inconvenienced, our Tu B’Shvat holiday will be one to remember!

Please plan to bring one reusable plate, cup and utensil per person. Cloth napkins, metal serving spoons, bowls for each table, cloth tablecovers, and small compost buckets are most welcome, as are any other ideas for reducing our waste.

If you would like to bring any of the above in addition to your own place setting, please email the Sustainable Seder coordinator,  Stephanie Field.

Let’s go for minimum waste in 2020!
