Let’s take a mystical journey through the most grounded of acts, eating. Together we will climb the Tree of Life and navigate the Four Worlds of Existence, in a universe spanning Seder. Tu Bishvat is a time to celebrate and love trees and the Tree of Life! Our tradition teaches us it is a time to do a mindful eating practice with a variety of fruits and nuts.

From the Torah:
God made grow out of the ground every tree that is pleasant to look at and good to eat, [including] the Tree of Life in the
middle of the garden, and the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil…God gave the man a commandment, saying, ‘You may
definitely eat from every tree of the garden. But from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, do not eat, for on the day you
eat from it, you will definitely die.’…The woman replied to the serpent, ‘We may eat from the fruit of the trees of the garden.
But of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘Do not eat it, and do not [even] touch it, or else you
will die.’ The serpent said to the woman, ‘You will certainly not die! Really, God knows that on the day you eat from it, your
eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’ The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and
desirable to the eyes, and that the tree was attractive as a means to gain intelligence. She took some of its fruit and ate [it]. She also gave some to her husband, and he ate [it]. The eyes of them both were opened… [Gen. 2:9, 16-17, 3:3-7]
