Guest Rabbi Claire Ginsburg Goldstein to lead services
On Friday evening, Jan. 25, the Philipstown Reform Synagogue (PRS) will welcome friends and congregants to celebrate Tu B’shevat, the Jewish New Year of the Trees. Guest Rabbi Claire Ginsburg Goldstein will lead the observances, including a special Tu B’shevat “seder.” Guests are invited to gather at St. Mary’s Parish Hall at 5:30 p.m. Observances will begin at 6 p.m. with Shabbat candlelighting and a short service, followed by the seder and a potluck dinner. With its emphasis on fruit, the Tu B’shevat seder is a special favorite for kids and family members of all ages.
