Cursed is the Ground for Your Sake: An Introduction to Jewish Food Justice

Join Jewish Farm School and Kol Tzedek for a 3-part adult learning series exploring the Jewish agricultural traditions that serve as a blueprint for a just, sustainable, and equitable food system. Through text study and discussion, we’ll delve into Judaism’s perspectives on food and farming and its response to the inherent injustices embedded in agricultural societies. We’ll then use this as a foundation for addressing contemporary food justice issues connected to racism, worker’s rights, and environmental sustainability.

Fee for all three classes: $18 for Kol Tzedek members; $36 for non-members

Classes are on Tuesdays November 28, December 5, and December 12 from 7-8:30. Each class will build on the previous, so please try to come to all three.

Hannah Slipakoff is Jewish Farm School’s Program Manager. She’s been engaged in community farming for over 10 years and currently manages the production garden at KleinLife JCC in Northeast Philadelphia.

Nati Passow is the co-founder and Executive Director of the Jewish Farm School. He is passionate about the potential to create a just, equitable, and sustainable urban food system, and believes Judaism offers some powerful tools for doing so.
