We are blessed to be able to, once again, present a Tu Bishvat/New Year of the Trees episode. We are late posting this show as it is now a few weeks from the originally broadcast date on the 15th of Shvat, but at any moment this holiday can serve to remind us, daily, of the possibilities for meaningful connections with Trees, fruits, the Seasons, and the world that surrounds us.

There is a lot of work to be done reclaiming this meaningful holiday from those who have used it to justify colonialism, displacement, and erasure of Palestinian histories. Happily, we are able to feature many voices and texts that help us with reclamation by drawing meaning and inspiration from deep within the roots of Jewish life. Tune-in to hear a reading from Kingston author Leanne Lieberman’s new young adult novel Book of Trees; an update on displacement and resistance in the Negev; preparations and readings from our Kabbalistic Tu Bishvat Seder; plus, other radio waves turned to branches turned to more beautiful metaphors.

Music from Eekwol ft. Mass and Flipdabird (“The Tree”) and Testament (“Generation Z”).
