Preserving Jewish Culture: Growing Spirituality in a Contemporary Jewish Agricultural Program

Abraham and Rebecca Solomon and Ida Schwartz Distinguished Lecture Series in Judaic Studies

"Preserving Jewish Culture: Growing Spirituality in a Contemporary Jewish Agricultural Program"
Arielle Agababa Levites, The George Washington University

This year's series will be on the contemporary Jewish agricultural and farming movement.  In recent years Jews have been engaged in a back to the soil movement which has been infused with Jewish spiritual renewal. The movement has resulted in goats and chickens replacing tennis courts at Jewish Community Centers, religious services held in the forest, and the creation of communal farms dedicated to everything from organic farming to revitalizing Yiddish. This series examines this emerging movement.
