Adath Israel, Merion Station, PA
Spend your day learning, celebrating, and hands-on doing at the intersection of food, sustainability, and Jewish life.
This all-day event will be similar to last year’s, with exciting speakers, workshops, a vibrant marketplace, and delicious food. This coming year in the Hebrew calendar is the Shmita (Sabbatical) year, so we look forward to topics on the themes of rest, renewal, and sustainable agriculture. (Click here for more info about the Shmita year). Only two weeks prior to Thanksgiving, we hope to give participants food for thought on how to make their Thanksgiving experiences sustainable for their families and their communities at large.

All day at the festival, vendors and organizations show off their wares and spread the word to a crowd of passionate foodies and food-concerned consumers. The Shuk features local purveyors from whom you can taste and purchase local, sustainable food, art and other goodies, as well as local non-profits working on food related issues.
Do you represent a business or organization that would benefit from intimately interacting with 200+ Jewish influencers, chefs, food activists, writers, industry professionals, and early adapter consumers? You can have a table at our shuk! Fill our the Vendor Registration Form or contact Leah Lazer.
Highlights of the 2013 Food Festival were…
“Getting more connected to Philly food justice issues and how they are being addressed.”
“The lunch was delicious! The farm stands were great, I got so much great produce! The keynote speakers were very informative and interesting.”
“Making connections with people sharing similar interests.”
Because of the 2013 Food Festival…
“I’m meeting with the sustainability office at the college where I work to talk about doing a joint program on Shmita.”
“I planted the lettuce seeds I got from one of the presenters!”
“I will be paying more attention to GMO food labeling issues, both in the political realm and also in my personal food choices.”
“I’ve told several people what I learned at the text study on Shmita. And I’m hoping to try canning at least once!”
