Tri-Valley Cultural Jews will celebrate the traditional Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat on Sunday, Feb. 9, with a potluck lunch and a presentation by the Livermore Area Recreation and Parks District on native trees and the animals that depend on them. Bay Area children will also be given native oak seedlings, along with instruction on their care and feeding, and when and where to plant them.
The potluck will be accompanied by music and singing. Those attending are asked to bring a dish to share, along with a card that lists the ingredients for members who may prefer dairy- or gluten free dishes. In keeping with the holiday tradition, those bringing dishes are encouraged to include ingredients such as dates, figs, oranges, almonds, raisins, olives, and carob.
The celebration will be held from 10:15 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th St., Livermore. Cost is $10 per non-member adult.
