Food and Sustainability: Limmud Chavruta

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this interactive session, we will explore, debate, and discuss food and sustainability from a Jewish perspective. Are trees God’s most beautiful works? How could waste be good? Is vegetarianism Jewish? How do we achieve food sustainability? 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!
