Ellen Bernstein’s seder is a masterpiece. It gives new life and language to Tu B’Sh’vat. I am so very grateful to have this side of the tradition ignited in a fresh and so very meaningful way.

Ellen Bernstein's A NEW YEAR FOR THE TREES awakens the soul from the alienating sleep of technological civilization.
In this powerful and poetic Tu B'Sh'vat haggadah, Bernstein revives Judaism's timeless affirmation of life, blending ancient text with contemporary teaching to renew our appreciation of creation and to challenge us to reconsider our place in nature and the way we live.
A NEW YEAR FOR TREES doesn't merely renew Tu B'Sh'vat, it re-invents it.
—Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author, Minyan, The Ethics of the Sages, Tanya, the Masterpiece of Hasidic Wisdom
