The Hazon Food Conference is the only place in the world where farmers and rabbis, nutritionists and chefs, vegans and omnivores come together to explore the dynamic interplay of food, Jewish tradition, and contemporary life. Learn from the experts and you will never look at eggs, bees, or food prices the same way again.
This year’s highlights include:
- 4 days of kosher farm-to-table food in a pluralistic Jewish community
- Rockin’ New Year’s Eve “Butterfly Masquerade” party
- Rabbis and leaders in Jewish thought bringing to life history, ethics, Jewish text, and meaningful prayer
- Expert cooking demonstrations and hands-on learning with renowned chefs
- Hands-on homesteading workshops with farmers and city folk for backyard chickens, pollinator conservation, and beekeeping
- Conversations and take-home resources about food justice, including how poultry and pollinators affect what we eat, and how what we eat affects them, governmental policies that are supporting or detracting from our ability to uphold our food values, and how being Jewish fits into all these foodie issues
- Beit Midrash: text study on the Poultry, Pollinators & Policy theme in Hebrew or English. All levels welcome!
The Hazon Food Conference is December 29 – January 1 at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in Falls Village, CT. A cohort from Colorado will be attending to capture the energy and knowledge from the Food Conference to build new knowledge, connections, energy and ideas and bring them back to our community. We are seeking a diverse group of participants of all ages and religious backgrounds. Scholarships specifically for people in the Boulder and Denver areas are available. Details and the application are here. Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis so apply today!
