Jewish Community Center, Ann Arbor, MI
Dr. Oran Hesterman, President and CEO of Fair Food Network, will be the keynote speaker for a community symposium focusing on Jewish perspectives around food, land, and justice issues on March 23 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm at the Jewish Community Center. The Shmita, or sabbatical, year, which begins this fall, taps into the most fundamental elements of sustainability in its injunction to rest the land, have a conservation approach to food and agriculture, and treat those who labor more justly. This symposium will explore how ancient Jewish traditions around food and land are relevant to us today.
