As the new year begins, Manchester Jewish Museum will be celebrating new starts and new life on the Sunday before Tu B’Shevat.

The 15th of the Hebrew month of Shevat (this year falling on Monday 17 January) is celebrated as Tu B’Shevat – the ‘new year of trees’. It celebrates new life and marks the season in which the first blooming trees in Israel emerge from their winter sleep. Tu B’Shevat is often marked by eating symbolic fruits including grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates.

Learn all about Shevat traditions and history and decorate your own small ceramic pots. You’ll also plant your own herb seeds to take home and grow in the new year.

Tickets for this event include general admission to the museum too. Feel free to explore the stunning synagogue and galleries or grab some refreshments in the museum’s café.

This event is designed for ages 6+ but all ages are welcome.
