Curious about what Judaism says about the power of a plant-based lifestyle?

In this era of climate crisis, it’s more essential than ever before to be conscious of the impact of our choices. Caring for the Earth and our physical well-being are among our most fundamental values, as a people attuned to the cycle of time and seasons, as well as the health of our bodies.  How do we integrate that with the food we eat?

As we prepare for Shavuot and engage in a community wide conversation on sustainability, join Jodi Krizer Graber, Berkshires resident and staff member of Jewish Veg, to learn what each of us can do for a healthy environment inside and outside our homes. Jewish Veg is a national organization that educates and builds community to encourage plant-based lifestyles through celebration and conversations about Jewish values.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting with Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $3 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.

Masks are optional.
