Food and Hunger: Limmud Chavruta

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this interactive session, we will explore, debate, and discuss food and hunger from a Jewish perspective. What is the point of fasting? How can we best feed the hungry? Is it better to give bread, dough, or money? What is food justice? Ancient sources, modern scholarship, song lyrics, and more will be used. All are welcome; prior knowledge of Jewish texts or Hebrew is not required. Part of the new Limmud Chavruta series on food. Come to one session; or even better, come to all four!
