2018 Boston Jewish Food Conference: Living Off the Land
Sunday, June 10 • 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm, Temple Israel, 477 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA
The annual Boston Jewish Food Conference (BJFC) brings together community members to learn about Jewish agriculture, labor issues, health, food access, kashrut, and local food history. The fun day of learning and community building includes workshops, a meal, a shuk (marketplace), and DIY activities.
As Jews, we have historical roots in the land and a contemporary reputation as “people of the book.” How do we reconcile that? From agricultural best-practices to holiday celebrations and family stories, our ties to place and culture bind us together.
CBE is a co-sponsor of this year's conference, and our own Rabbi Mike and Leann Shamash will both be presenting workshops.
