Betenu's Tu B'Shevat Seder is a popular annual event, and great fun for the whole family. The Tu B'Shevat Seder is a ritual modeled after the Passover Seder to celebrate God's presence in nature.  View more information about the festival of Tu B'Shevat.

The festival of Tu B'Shevat begins on Friday evening February 10 this year, and Betenu's Seder will be held that evening.  Doors open at 6:00 PM.  The Seder will start at 6:30.  Attendees are asked to bring a potluck dish to share, plus a Seder item.  Please sign up in advance - either via the sign-up sheet in the Betenu front lobby, or by contacting the Betenu office by sending email or calling 603-886-1633.
