"Tu b'Shevat is the birthday of the trees:' said Temple Israel Rabbi Jennifer Tisdale of
Commerce Township. "The holiday mainly represents spring in Israel, but here it gives us
the hope that we know spring is coming."
Chardonnay and Cabernet from Israel were among the fine wines provided by Napa
Marketplace in Commerce Township. Participants sipped, socialized and enjoyed a meal

more about the holiday': said hostess Robbie Sherman.
"We're just a little disappointed there wasn't any Manischewitz to taste," joked Jason
Klein of Bloomfield Hills, who attended with his wife, Lisa.
