We are excited to convene the 7th annual Boston Jewish Food Conference!
Our conference fosters new dynamics and connections within the Jewish community by utilizing food and agriculture to discuss the intersections of justice, sustainability, and culture against a background of Jewish traditions and contemporary life. The day includes multiple workshops in the kitchen and classroom, and culminates in a community Shuk (marketplace), with do-it-yourself activities, advocacy opportunities, tabling by community organizations, our silent auction, and features a kosher, vegetarian meal prepared by conference participants.

Living Off The Land
As Jews, we have historical roots in the land and a contemporary reputation as “people of the book.” How do we reconcile that? From agricultural best-practices to holiday celebrations and family stories, our ties to place and culture bind us together.
Join us as we grow our relationship with the land, and with each other. We’ll delve into our spiritual connection, as well as practical strategies to help us be better stewards of Creation.
As Jews, it's our duty to be mindful not only of the quality of the food we put in our bodies but also the overall health of our communities. What can we learn from the cycles of the seasons, the harvests and our historical traditions to nurture our bodies, spirits, and communities?
