Ibrahim Baba
Ibrahim Baba, scholar, educator cultural worker and public intellectual and activist, was our friend and spiritual teacher. His yartzeit will be commemorated during the Tu Bshevat ceremony at Chochmat Halev which begins at 11 AM.  Jeffrey Kessler will share memories of Baba in front of the flowering quince planted in his honor. Join us to share in Ibrahim Baba’s heart wisdom while we celebrate the life of trees.
