    Online via Zoom. Members, access the link to this program on your Zoom Links for Members webpage.

    Sukkot has always been a festival tied to our environment, but especially so this Shmita year. In Torah, every seven years our land is to remain fallow, and 5782 is one of those years. This gives us the opportunity to refresh the land and reconnect to it. At this event, Rabbi Freedman and Lisa Apfelberg will explore the sources and underlying meanings of Shmita in Torah and Jewish tradition. Lisa will also address practical ways to make environmental justice a part of daily living.

Thursday, Sept. 23
