Over the past few weeks we’ve featured some really interesting articles on JCarrot. Judith Belasco offered her reflections on cooking with her “sous chef,” her two-year-old son Noah; Alyssa Bauer shared with us information about the Shefa Project, a Jewish, sustainability initiative at McGill University; and lastly, I wrote an article about the upcoming program, “To Till or To Tend” between the Jewish Farm School and Hebrew College. Thank you to Hazon intern, Alyssa Berkowitz, for compiling this week’s round up. This is her last round up as her time with Hazon comes to an end. We wish her the best of luck in finishing her degree!
This Week’s Featured Articles
- Stir, Pour, Not Much More: Cooking with Noah by Judith Belasco– “My sous chef tosses the salad and some of it ends up on the floor. He sticks his hand into the bowl, picks out his favorite ingredients and eats them. He takes a bite of a carrot, declares it “too hard” and returns the teeth-marked carrot to the bowl.”
- Shabbat Done Sustainably by Alyssa Bauer– “Walking inside from the cold wintery streets of MontrÃ©al, where the smell of onions and carrots fill the two-story shul, one can hear Friday night prayers ring out from a boisterous crowd of 20-somethings, excited university students and local community members welcoming the Shabbat Queen.”
College Course Springs Up at Jewish Farm School by Alyssa Berkowitz– “Across the country, Jewish environmental and farming programs are (pun intended) taking root in the Jewish community.”
