Reuse, Renew, Recycle, Assiyah, Yetzirah, Beriyah TuBishvat Seder Plate by Harriete Estel Berman

Since 1988, the use of post-consumer recycled materials has been a core premise of my work. This interpretation of the recycling symbol covered in metallic gold tin cans creates a platform for the three types of fruit used during the Tu Bishvat Seder service.

For Assiyah, a pomegranate branch symbolizes the fruit where only the inside is eaten. For Yetzirah, an olive branch represents fruits where only the outside is eaten. For Beriyah, a silhouette of figs and fig leaves includes images of apples, pears and grapes, fruits where all parts are eaten.

The center star is a profound symbol of Judaism subtly presented as a radiating light. Within the concept of tikkun olam and our observance of TuBishvat, we repair the world through our actions.
