Tu B’Shevat Seder in Jerusalem

Rabbi Shalom Gold, Rabbi Fishel Todd and Rabbi Don Channen of Pirchei Shoshanim host the Tu B’Shevat Seder in Jerusalem

Despite the fact that Tu B’ Shevat is discussed in both the Mishna and Gemara there is
very little information available about the Holiday as well as not having a well defined
structure to follow it. In the mid 1500’s the students of the Ari, Rabbi Isaac Luria
Ashkenazi Zt’l formulated a special Tu B’Shevat Seder that was set up along the lines of
the Pesach (Passover) Seder. They wrote a brief pamphlet entitled the Pri Eitz Hadar
which offers us a structure that provides a positive and enjoyable way to celebrate this
spiritual and meaningful holiday. This is the first stage of the countdown to Pesach which is in
exactly 60 days from tonight.
The Seder is broken down into 4 sequences. In the beginning of each sequence
wine is poured which we do not drink until the end of the sequence. After the
conclusion of the entire Seder a festive meal is served accompanied by music, song and
the feeling of the joy of life while enjoying the wine and good food. White table cloths
are placed on the tables with candles lighting up the room. One should dress up in
their Shabbos clothes. Incense, preferably myrtle, which is taken during Succos, is placed
on the tables as well as many flowers which are used to decorate the tables and give the
air a pleasant fragrance. Your finest drinking vessels should be used as each participant
will be drinking four glasses of wine or grape juice. The size of the glasses will
determine how much wine will be needed. You will need an equal amount of Bottles of
White and Red wine. A full wine glass (regular size). Figure 1 Bottle per person (½
Bottle Red and ½ Bottle White). If you use shot glasses then figure each bottle will be
ample for 4-6 people.
