LoKo Workshops: Making Ethical Jewish Food Choices
October 5, 2010
WHAT IS LOKO AND WHAT DO WE DO?
LoKo runs educational programs on the importance of kashrut as an ancient system of humane and sustainable meat production, and its relevance for Jews today as we make decisions about how we eat. We run workshops for synagogue, school, and other groups. These workshops include observing shechita, participating in the kashering process, and a learning session about the ways in which Jewish law and tradition intersect with our growing understanding of the impact our food choices have on our world. If you have ever worried that keeping kosher conflicts with making ethical food choices, then this workshop is for you and your community. Come and learn how Jewish law has emphasized local, humanely raised, sustainable food for thousands of years, and meet the dynamic leaders who are working hard to ensure that kashrut stays true to its roots. If you are interested in getting a group together to participate, or you would like to discuss the workshops in more details, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next workshop is on October 24th at 1 PM at Temple Emunah in Lexington. Please contact Temple Emunah to sign up.
