Hazon Tu B'Shvat Haggadah

For centuries we have marked time by celebrating trees and our connection to the natural world this time of year. Nestled between the darkest days of winter and the blossom of springtime Tu B'Shvat offers us a chance to reconnect with the natural world when we often feel disconnected and cooped up inside. But just as trees are working hard sending nourishment to their roots in preparation for springtime growth, so too do we prepare for our reemergence into the world of activity following months of cautionary life. We invite you to use the Hazon 2021 Tu B'Shvat Haggadah as your guide in this celebration of life, nourishment, and hope.
