Beantown Jewish Gardens (Ganei Beantown) runs community-wide events that focus on Jewish education and teaching about crucial issues for our times; food justice and working for a more just and sustainable food system. Our high quality, pluralistic programming has shown that we can come together as a community to delve into the issues that affect us all for generations to come.
Our mission is building community through experiential food and agriculture education rooted in Jewish text, tradition and culture. Facilitating a connection between Judaism, food, and agriculture breathes new life into Jewish tradition, community, and identity and engages the Jewish community in the question of how to feed ourselves and the world in a just and sustainable manner.
Just as beans add nitrogen to nourish and replenish our soil,
so too this project will add vital nutrients to our Beantown Jewish community.
