October 13, 2014 – All students are invited to hang out, in and around our school sukkah. There will be music, art projects, food, astronomy discussions, cooking demos, candy sukkah building and a collection of items for those in our community who, more often than not, are living with shelter insecurity and impermanence. Afternoon buses will run on a normal schedule, so students who wish to participate should make arrangements to be picked up or spend the night with local friends. We hope to see you there!
October 23, 2014 – Special guests Rabbi Brahm Weinberg of Young Israel West Hartford, Rabbi Michael Pincus of Beth Israel, and Sarah Chandler, Director of Earth-Based Spiritual Practice and the Adamah Farm Fellowship at Isabella Freedman will join us for a panel discussion on the history, meaning, and 21st century practicality of Shabat Ha’aretz – the sabbatical year for the earth. Shmita impacts the land of Israel, and the world, in a variety of ways: environmental, financial, social equity and food justice. As a special treat, students will experience some shmita snacks— pickles vegetables and jams from Adamah Farms!
