As a member of the editorial team creating the new High Holy Day prayer book, I can report on behalf of all of us that we are not creating a book, per se, so much as a sacred component that is part of the solution to a problem (or set of problems).
Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine that you are gathered with your congregation for High Holiday worship. It is Erev Yom Kippur - the holiest night of the year.
Wheat, barley, grape, fig, pomegranate, olive, and date. Collectively they are known as the sheva minim, the seven species of sacred fruits and grains grown in the Land of Israel.
Too cold to plant a tree outside? This tree can be the centerpiece at your Tu BiShvat party. Most materials can be found at your local craft shop (and, of course, a quick stop at your local candy store!)
Celebrate the New Year of the Trees by making recycled paper using a blender or food processor.
