A Tu Bishvat Seder
The modern seder draws on elements of its mystical predecessor.
Reader: And the angel of God appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush; and Moses looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire and the bush was not consumed (Exodus 3:2).
The Fourth Fruit
This has a tough skin on the outside but sweet fruit within--mangos, bananas, avocados, or sabra, a desert pear--and symbolizes the mystery of the world and our study of Torah. We are constantly seeking to uncover her secrets, and are continually nourished by her fruits.
