On Friday, January 17 BCC is piloting our first early inter-generational service starting at 6:30 PM.

It’s going to be an hour long service  honoring the holiday of Tu B’shvat (the birthday of the trees) designed for an intergenerational celebration. It will be followed by a pot-luck dairy dinner and game night.

Please bring your games and join us. Bring some children if you want. You can eat ahead of time and just play games with us if you want.

Tu Bishvat is a Jewish holiday, occurring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat (in 2014, Tu Bishvat sbegins in the evening of January 15 and finished at nightfall on 16 January). It is also called “Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot” (Hebrew: ראש השנה לאילנות‎), literally “New Year of the Trees.” In contemporary Israel the day is celebrated as an ecological awareness day and trees are planted in celebration.
