    Ep.10 Feeding the Future

    Many Jewish institutions are facing a decline in young adult engagement compared to that of older generations. Could food and land-based programming be the solution? Hear from returning and new guests about how they get young people through the door (virtually and irl), and how previously disengaged Jews are finding community and connection through Jewish outdoor, food, farming, and environmental education (JOFEE) programs. 

    Want to learn more about something you heard on the show?


    Here's the Seeds of Opportunity report mentioned in the episode.

Delicious!

Such a great reminder that food is about so much more than just fats, carbs, and proteins. The people interviewed in this series have all had such interesting lives. It's wonderful that we get to get to come along for the journey!

A really enjoyable listen

I'm not Jewish and I find these really great. The stories are universal and compelling especially if you're into food. Easy to recommend.

Digestible and delightful stories of Jewish food traditions that I wouldn't have known about without this podcast
