Tu B'Shevat Celebration
When Eric Komar sings, Dickinsonians listen.
After all, the New Jersey singer/songwriter is a much-sought-after musician in the New York metro area. And he's performed his original Jewish folk/rock/jazz music in synagogues, community centers and Hillels nationwide and has released two CDs.
So, each month, when Komar arrives to help lead religious services at the Asbell Center, students and members of the local Beth Tikvah community join together to enjoy some special Friday-night fellowship.
This month, they together observed Tu B’Shevat. Held on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Shevat, the holiday is known as the the New Year for Trees, a day that celebrates the earth, its produce and the promise of a new spring, when the trees will come into bloom.
