Join us to celebrate Earth Day and begin exploring Shmita, the concept of year of release and renewal, and how it might resonate in our communities in the coming year (and beyond). Register here.

Earth Day is a kick off event to begin envisioning possibilities. For those interested after this event, we will host 3 follow-up sessions for those who want to learn more about Shmita and think more deeply how we can build on the Shmita year to inspire Jewish learning and connection in Vermont. 3 part series: May 3, May 10, May 24; 7pm-8:15pm.
