JOES dinner group – Jews for Organic Environmentally Sustainable dinner group

After a successful first year, J.O.E.S. - "Jews for Organic Environmentally Sustainable food" - returns, drawing links between Reform Judaism and issues surrounding sustainable food and agriculture. Over the course of 6 dinners at group members' homes, we will share great food and wine and address how the food choices we make reflect our values as Reform Jews. Dinners, prepared by the group, will be focussed on a culinary theme and topical readings, both secular and religious, will anchor the discussions at each gathering. What is Eco Kosher? Is there a connection between organic agriculture and Tikkun Olam? How are agricultural innovations in Israel influencing farming in other parts of the world? Think of it as a potluck dinner club for LT Members who care deeply about their food choices and see the intersection of food, cooking, sustainability and Judaism as a central part of their identity.


Our JOES meetings will be approximately once a month on a Tuesday at 8pm. Location will rotate among members homes.
The first 2 dates will be:
11/14 & 12/19
Couples must sign up individually. There is a cap of 14 participants (including the two co-leaders and their wives).
Participants are expected to attend all, or most, of the meetings.

Co-Leaders: Ari Perkins (ER doc, aspiring cook and resident mixologist amperk001@yahoo.com) and Adam Kaye (Culinary Director at Blue Hill at Stone Barns adamdkaye@me.com )
