Tu B'Shevat Farm Seder 

When: Thu., Jan. 16, 7-9:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $36 in advance, $45 at the door
Urban Adamah (1050 Parker St., Berkeley) celebrates Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year for trees, with a special seder, or ceremonial dinner, this Thursday. The educational farm and community center, which just acquired a new, larger site in West Berkeley, is honoring the beginning of the fruit-bearing cycle by offering food and drinks made from the holiday’s seven sacred species — date, barley, olive, grape, wheat, fig, and pomegranate. The sustenance and libations on the menu are indicative of the organization’s creative flair. Guests can sample creations like fig salami and panna cotta with pomegranate syrup made by caterer and former Urban Adamah fellow Julia Braun while sipping on concoctions such as date whiskey and fig rum. Before chowing down, presentations involving songs, theatrical skits, and guided meditations ask participants to ponder each species’ connection to the Torah and modern-day life.
