Shabbat P’ Va’era Shevat - 5781

Jan 15 - 21, 2021


How will PHC celebrate Tu B’Shevat this year?

Tu B’Shevat is in two weeks on Thursday, January 28. We would like to have a “Drive-By Tu’Bshevat” celebration.

Here is how it works: On Tuesday Evening, Jan 26th, we will drive by PHC’s parking lot to pick up a Tu B’Shevat package of various fruits and other assorted brachot for the Tu B’Shevat Seder. (Please don’t eat any of the fruits before the Seder.)

B’Ezrat Hashem, on Wednesday Evening, Jan 27th, we will have a “Zoom Virtual Tu B’Shevat Seder”.

More details to follow. In the meantime we are collecting donations to make this event possible.

It is customary to sponsor the Tu B’Shevat Seder in memory of a loved one.

Thanks in advance for your participation!
