Anash of New Haven marked Tu B’Shevat with a farbrengen led by Rabbi Meir Chaim Posner of Chabad at Yale, and by eating the fruits of Eretz Yisroel.
Anash of New Haven gathered Sunday night for a farbrengen marking Tu B’Shevat, the Rosh Hashana of trees.
The farbrengen was hosted by Congregation Lubavitch and co-hosted by Ohel Yosef Yitzchok. Rabbi Meir Chaim Posner of Chabad at Yale discussed the origins of Tu B’Shevat, and the role of minhag in Jewish life and custom.
The participants also enjoyed a spread of many fruits, including the Shiva’as Haminim and exotic fruits for shehechiyanu, all beautifully arranged on platters by the organizers.
