Chaplain Nalini Indorf Kaplan and Rabbi Elisheva Brenner of EcoGlatt are presenting a workshop on Sunday, January 29, where you will discover many powerful ideas and common misconceptions about kashrut and meat, and what you can do to make informed choices for both your physical and spiritual well-being, whether you eat meat or not.
What might it mean to connect cosmic moments to ordinary life, in which routine actions express spiritual reality? As Jews, we have been given mitzvot to provide a system of cosmic-daily life connection. Learn about the mitzvah of kashrut and our relationship with food, specifically meat, over millennia. We will explore holy eating in Torah, Talmud, and other texts and provide an overview of contemporary kosher meat abbatoirs and meat producers. Knowledge of Hebrew helpful but not required.
The workshop will run from 10:00 am – 12 noon, with no charge, at the HEA Library, Hebrew Education Alliance, 3600 Ivanhoe, Denver, CO. For info, call 303-758-9400 and RSVP to Naomi Kirshner.
