Jewish Community Farming Educators Community of Practice
On the Hunt For the Perfect Maror
with Abundance Farm Team!
To join zoom meeting 2pm April 10th 2019:
Just in time for Pesach, join Nili Simhai and for a sample food and planting lesson that highlights Abundance Farm’s approach to combining text study, Hebrew, farming, and bringing the outdoors inside. This will be a follow-along experiential webinar. To play along at home, register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive a list of foods that you can bring with you to the webinar. This will be a great webinar for your team to do together. Or, you can just come to the webinar and it will still be fun and educational.
Nili Simhai, Director of Outdoor Education for Abundance Farm:
Nili served as the Director of Teva, a leading Jewish environmental education organization, for fourteen years. A recipient of the Covenant Award for excellence in Jewish education, Nili has been recognized for her leadership in training and counseling hundreds of educators in the tenets of Jewish environmental education. One of her current passions is outdoor classrooms in Jewish institutions.
Rebecca Leung, Farm Educator for Abundance Farm:
Rebecca became interested in gardening while doing an AmeriCorps program at an elementary school in California, where rosemary grows as a bush and kale is a perennial. Since then, she’s worked at a variety of CSA and wholesale farms in Massachusetts, including Brookfield Farm and most recently Old Friends Farm in Amherst, MA. Rebecca is excited to facilitate her own and young people’s Jewish learning through farming and being connected to land.
