GRAPES & OLIVES/WINE & OIL

  • October 19 - 20, 2012 (T 200)

Two fascinating days of programming will be led by Abraham Silver, Scholar in Residence, Israel's foremost Jewish educator and tour guide. We will also be joined by Barbara Goldstein, Deputy Executive Director, Hadassah offices in Israel. This is an opportunity to have Israel as our classroom - using all of our senses.

Friday, October 19

Wine making and olive oil are amongst the oldest crafts and businesses in history - Jewish History. The Bible is filled with hundreds of references to both the vineyards and the vintage; to the olives and the oil. Our classroom will be on the site of an ancient wine press, vineyard and winery. The texts from the Torah to Jeremiah to the Song of Songs will come alive. Of course, tasting will be an essential part of the study!

Following Shabbat service of your choice, walk through the streets of Rehavia and meet the Golden Age of Spain: the poets, the Rabbis. Text will be provided.
