description

How could Shabbat, Shmitah (sabbatical), and agricultural cycles disrupt our assumptions about what it means to own, rest, and relate to the earth and each other? We will delve into rabbinic and biblical agricultural wisdom to inform our contemporary understandings and practice.

This class is part of Open Circle Social Action, which brings people together to learn about the importance of the practice of tikkun olam (repair the world), tzedek (justice), and tzedakah (charity) in Jewish tradition; work with community organizers in local advocacy organizations; and make a difference through a meaningful social action activity on a specific theme.

Instructors: Rabbi Getzel Davis & Leora Mallach
Schedule: Tuesdays, 7-8:30 pm., May 21, May 28, June 4, June 11, June 18, June 25. Plus project with Boston Area Gleaners TBD.
Location: Hebrew College, Newton.

This class is organized by Open Circle Social Action, a Hebrew College adult learning program supported by CJP.
