Bringing our First Fruits — class with Beantown Jewish Gardens

I”ll be co-leading this workshop on  living life as a gift, bringing out best to community and other themes, and we’ll learn how to make preserves!

Preserving our first fruits for Bikkurim

Co-sponsored with Organic Torah

Jewish agricultural law requires farmers to bring their first fruits to
Jerusalem to be consumed there during the festival holidays. If the first
fruits emerged at a different time of year, then farmers could preserve them to
bring when the time was right. Lets learn our modern methods of preservation
techniques in order to save the fruits of our harvest for our own festival
times. Come make jam with seasonal produce.

Educators: Aaron Weinblatt (Boston Science Museum), Rabbi Natan Margalit (Organic Torah)
