Farm to Table Shabbat

October 28, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Sit down together for a delicious, locally sourced Shabbat dinner at Hillel.
This year we are focusing on cultivating a sense of connectedness to our food and our place as humans in the wider ecosystem, especially as this week’s Torah portion is Bereshit, the biblical creation story.
Each of our food choices have the power to shape lives and ecosystems. All the more so, institutions buying on a large scale have power to shape our food system. This year we are asking the question: How can institutions like Hillel and Tufts use their buying power as a large institutions to try to effect change in our food system?

5 pm — Pre-Program with Leora Mallach, Director of Ganei Beantown discussing this season on farms in New England, articulating our values around food choices, and possibilites for communal/institutional change around food.

6 pm — Conservative, Reform, and Kavanah (alternative/meditative) services at Hillel with integration of Farm to Table themes!

7:15 pm — Locally Sourced Dinner!
