Join us at our special Pre-Summer Shabbat Mini-Fair: Shmirat Haguf/Shmirat Haadamah - Caring for the Body/Caring for the Earth

Caring for the body and caring for the earth are two deeply connected Jewish values. Being aware of nature and the planet makes us realize how important it is to be in right relation to the trees, the grass, and all creatures in our environment for all human well-being. For our pre-summer Shabbat Mini-Fair we’ll taste and learn and engage in health, food and nature through study and conversation, a “smoothie-station,” and outdoor activities.

ACTIVITY #1 A discussion about the connections between food, medicine, the earth and us, both sacred and secular.

ACTIVITY #2 Smoothie Station. Make tasty, colourful, healthy drinks from fruits and plants. All ingredients provided, but feel free to bring your own. (Extra blenders would be appreciated.)

ON DISPLAY: The ORANGE Table - Looking at food and “food”

ACTIVITY #3 Bike Ride along the River. Load it on the bus, strap it to your car, or bike to shul, and then enjoy a leisurely Shabbat ride. Family-friendly (children + at least one parent) and speedier options available.

ACTIVITY #4 A silent “nature walk” in and around the grounds. Think, breath, connect, offer thanks.
