    Join us for a cornucopia of food, arts and holiday traditions in honor of Tu B’Shvat, the Jewish New Year of Trees. Activities celebrating sustainable living will take place throughout the Museum’s magnificent landmark site, the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue. Learn about the holiday while taking part in a mini Tu B’Shvat seder. Sample holiday foods, including dried fruits and nuts, from Lower East Side vendors. Tour the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue and discover the sustainable practices used in its restoration. Uncover your family roots in a workshop with genealogist Roger Lustig. Kids: create a family tree, and participate in earth-friendly art activities including making instruments out of recycled materials and creating collage poems with artist Robin Atlas for display on our Tu B’Shvat “tree.” A highlight of the festival is a concert with Bash the Trash, who perform using musical instruments made of trash and reused materials. For people of all ages, faiths and cultural backgrounds.
