Jewish Ethnobotany and Deep Ecology Walk
February 1, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
As part of Wilderness Torah’s Tu B’Shvat (Jewish Earth Day) celebration, Jolie Elan will lead a Jewish ethnobotany and deep ecology walk. Come connect deeper to your inner and outer wild on a guided nature walk and learn about local plants, their stories and uses as food and medicine.
More on Tu B’Shvat: As the days begin to lengthen, we pause during Tu B’Shvat to celebrate the unseen awakening of spring. Deep within the trees, the sap begins to flow as the trees start their cycle anew.
In the tradition of the Kabbalists (16th century mystics of Tsfat, Israel), we gather in the forest to create an experiential Tu B’Shvat seder that connects us to the trees and the elements. We delight in the fruit of the trees, and celebrate the season together through the five senses, song, meditation, and Jewish teachings.
