Teen Winter Series: The Wonders of Baking
In our baking workshop, we will focus on wheat’s significance in Judaism, and the journey that it takes from field to table. We will situate the wheat harvest in the Jewish agricultural calendar (harvest at Shavuot), as well as study the laws of peah (donating a corner of your field) and the Jewish approach to hunger and justice. Teens will thresh, winnow and grind wheat that was grown on site to make a traditional pastry like hamantaschen or rugelach. We will also make jam from scratch to enjoy with the pastries. Each program begins with grounding through meditation, song or movement. To close, we will reflect on the day and enjoy snacks together.
