Tu B’Shevat

February 11

Just thought you might like to know… Tu B’Shevat (Hebrew: טו בשבט) is, literally, the 15th of the month of Shevat. (“Beware the ides of Shevat!” said no one ever.)

April 11 - April 18

Just thought you might like to know… Pesach (Hebrew: פֶּסַח), aka Passover, commemorates the ancient Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt after generations of slavery. Many people observe the holiday by attending a Seder, a ritual meal during which the Pesach story is retold (including but not limited to: four cups of wine, four questions, and a story of four sons). Another common way to observe Pesach is to refrain from eating chametz (leavened grain- wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt, or any…
