*Shabbat Breirot are alternative ways to observe Shabbat in addition to our traditional service, where we will offer a bit of Jewish learning and time to garden during Sat morning
**There will be a celebration of Derekh Ha’etz (the new nature trail) preceding the annual meeting. We will celebrate garden stations along the trail, connecting each station to a book of the Torah. The Mishnah Garden will represent the Book of Exodus where our oldest experiences were agricultural and our oldest laws including peah and leket prescribe how we grow food.
