Tu B'Shevat means "the 15th day of Shevat". On this day, Jews celebrate New Year of the Trees, during which in Israel trees are planted, and at home it is celebrated with a ceremonial dinner.
During the holiday there is a farewell to winter ritual and greeting spring, symbolized by mixing white and red wine. During the dinner verses about plants in Israel are read and the blessing of wine and fruits take place before eating them. On the occasion of Tu B'Shevat, the Museum of the History of Polish Jews invites for three performances by Theatre 21. The performances will be referred to the culinary aspect of the holiday, which is why the meeting with actors will be held in a place where in the future there will be a kosher restaurant. The actors will play the role of the waiters, and the spectators- clients. The menu features the flavors, sounds and situations that will allow us to jointly discover the meaning of the holiday Tu B'Shevat.
Theatre 21 developed from theatre workshops held at Special School "Dac Szanse" in Warsaw. It is created by students and graduates suffering from Down's syndrome and autism.
The admission is free.
