For 3,000 years, Jewish tradition has grappled with what is fit – kosher – for us to eat. Today, questions about food have become ever more complicated as we come up against changing nutritional news, the use of chemical pesticides, and industrial farming. Health issues such as obesity and environmental damage are intrinsically connected to our personal and national food choices. In order to empower educators and individuals to teach these topics through a Jewish lens Hazon has created the Jewish Food Education Network (JFEN).
JFEN is a way for educators all over North America to connect with, share and learn from each other with the help of Hazon’s innovative food education resources and support.
JFEN Membership is open to all, whether you’re a full time Jewish educator or an individual looking to connect to a larger community.
JFEN is an invaluable experience for the next generation. Hazon has put so much time and care into creating amazing resources that can be used in all types of learning environments.
