Fort Tryon Jewish Center
An independent synagogue in Northern Manhattan
As an unaffiliated congregation that has long been an anchor of the Washington Heights Jewish community, we have thrived by evolving with our neighborhood and our membership. Today, the congregation is a diverse mix of families and individuals from many backgrounds. Our egalitarian services and our traditional ritual — spiritual, tuneful and participatory — attract people of all levels of observance.

Modeled on the Passover seder, the Tu Bishvat seder includes drinking four cups of wine and eating fruits representing the four Kabbalistic "worlds". We will also be learning several piyutim related to the festival. Following the seder we will conclude the evening with Baquashot, a collection of songs.
