Eco-Kashrut at Next First Friday Dinner

Eco-Kashrut: What We Have Learned from our Years of Jewish Farming and Ranching.

center for eco judaismRabbi Elisheva Brenner of the Center for Eco-Judaism will speak at Bonai Shalom’s First Friday dinner and discussion in June.

A radical, new understanding of Torah is born out of being a farmer and rancher. The yearning to connect to ancient Jewish traditions and grow sustainable food today inspired two rabbis to found the Center for Eco-Judaism in Pueblo, Colorado in 2009. It is now a synagogue, farm, ranch, wilderness, learning, teaching, and gathering place for the broader community. Come hear the successes and challenges of their inspiring and important work. Learn why current efforts at true Eco-Kashrut can’t work under today’s system of production, and what can be done about it.
