Tu B’shevat Experience Led By The Climate Action Team at Adas Israel Congregation

February 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrate the new year of the trees…and learn. Please join Rabbi Alexander, the Adas Climate Action Team, and special guest Elizabeth Bennet, founder of Fruitcycle!  We will enjoy seasonal treats and drinks, discuss how to apply Torah values to modern environmental questions, and learn about the impacts of our food choices. Join with other community members in committing to make small food choices in our own lives that yield significant environmental benefits when added together. Fruitcycle is a social enterprise that makes snacks using produce that would otherwise go to waste and provides jobs for women who have been formerly incarcerated, homeless, or are otherwise disadvantaged.
