Rocky Mountain Jewish Food Summit Almost Here

Kugel, Bees, Gardens, Chefs, Mini-Grants, Bike-Blended Smoothies and More!

This Sunday, April 29, an unprecedented gathering of the Jewish Food Movement in Colorado will unfold in Boulder. The Hazon Rocky Mountain Jewish Food Summit at the University Memorial Center at CU will be hosting farmers, rabbis, activists, entrepreneurs and others for a dynamic day of learning, celebration, eating, community-building, and hands-on doing. There will be a noodle kugel contest to determine whose kugel is the best in the west–is it yours?

Some of Boulder’s favorites will be on hand to share their stories, inspiration and resources: Reb Zalman Schacter-Shalomi, Morah Yehudis Fishman, the Boulder Kosher Meat Co-Op, Prof. Caryn Aviv from CU’s Jewish Studies program, Hannah Kapnik with Kevah, Seth Ellis Chocolatier, Restaurant 4580, Boulder Tuv Ha’aretz CSA, Red Wagon Organic Farm, and many more!

There will be optional yoga and morning services, 20 dynamic sessions on a wide range of topics covering everything at the intersection of food, sustainability, and Jewish life, a delicious kosher lunch, and an amazing Do It Yourself Extravaganza. Plus, special programming for middle-school-aged youth.

Register now for the best rate: $50/$25 students and seniors. Day of registration is $70. For the full schedule and program details and to register, visit: www.hazon.org/foodsummit.
