  • 5:30-7:00 Conference-cooked dinner and community Shuk (marketplace) featuring: Do-It-Yourself sessions, cooking demonstrations, advocacy opportunities and tabling by community agencies and organizations as well as our silent auction.

Community Networks

Come together to gain exposure to the resources and connections in our food systems and our Jewish networks, both in greater Boston and across New England. From our prayer to our gardens, community is essential to our faith and our practice. We’ll explore the web of food sourcing, distribution, and consumption, as well as the role of culture, institutions and our homes. We’ll emphasize the questions:

  • Where does our food come from?

  • Who are the people in our networks?

  • How do we align our Jewish values with our food values?

  • When are these decisions influenced by the the agricultural and Jewish calendar cycles?
