Eco-Kashrut Prayer

As a college student in a small liberal arts college; there are no kosher options, little vegetarian/vegan options, and only 20% of the food is locally sourced. Also, a meal plan in required in your tuition so you must eat at the cafeteria. There is no option to cook and buy your own food. So what I decided was that I will not eat meat at the cafeteria and when I eat dairy products I will say this quick prayer:

Thank you God, Creator of all things, for this food. I pray that this food was procured, handled, and delivered in a just way. If this is not the case, please forgive me for my ignorance. I will continue to strive daily to repair the world in word and deed. Tzedek, Tzedek, Tirdof.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
