Happy Tu B’Shevat!

It starts at sundown tonight. The Leman family is having its Seder tomorrow before sundown (for various reasons of family schedule). We’ll be using Bloom! by First Fruits of Zion. See it here (you can always have a late Seder when the books arrive). We’ll enjoy some liturgy together about the Seven Species. We’ll also plant some parsley to be used at our Passover Seder and start a project to do something beneficial this year for someone else. What could be happier?

  1. We are planning to have a family Seder tonight, marking the first one we’ve ever had for Tu B’Shevat. The FFOZ material offers some great insight and ideas. We will be having a full meal plus all kinds of fruit that comes from trees – dates, figs, pomegranates, grapes, olives, apples, apricots, mangos, oranges, pears, and papaya. I’m very much looking forward to it.

  2. Save me some mangos!

    God has surprised everybody by combining parts of Judaism, Christianity and Mormonism. That statement is not a prophesy about what God will do. It’s a summary of what God has recently done. Details at [LINK DELETED BY BLOG OWNER]

    • Everyone:

      Thisgoodriddle is proselytizing for Mormonism here. His comment originally had a link to (and you can still click on his name and get there) a poorly conceived mass of Bible citations designed to entice you into Mormonism :-)

      I’m not sure what makes people think it is kosher to go to other people’s successful blogs and promote their own sects and heresies, but thisgoodriddle certainly could use a lesson in manners. So here is my lesson for you, thisgoodriddle, write something people want to read so they will be attracted to it and want to read it. Don’t try to take advantage of the good writing of others to promote your cause.
