A Glezele Tey (A Glass of Tea)
In this interactive, multi-sensory encounter with Yiddish culture and history, families will share their own immigration stories, learn about the role the Workmen’s Circle played in helping immigrants build new lives, and connect with issues facing immigrants today.
We’ll dress up in costumes from past eras, create our own stories and drawings, and sip tea!
Join the Midtown Workmen’s Circle school to celebrate Tu B’Shvat, known as the Jewish New Year of the trees.
Deborah Strauss will lead a family-oriented Tu’Shvat seder, a ritual first begun by 17th century Jewish mystics, and adapted in modern times as a celebration of the fruits of the tree and the fruit of the vine, and an occasion to speak about environmental justice.
The seder will include a light meal, readings, discussion, and music.
