A Conversation about Race between Rabbi Micah Ellenson and Dr. Willie Jennings of Yale Divinity School

Friday, June 5, we were honored to have Dr. Willie Jennings join us for a powerful and timely program about race and racism.  Willie James Jennings is an American theologian known for his contributions on liberation theologies, cultural identities, and theological anthropology.   He is currently an Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Africana Studies at Yale University.

MITZVAH GARDEN

We plan to open the Mitzvah Garden and plant our summer crops beginning Monday, May 11th  and hopefully finish by Sunday May 17th. This year we are foregoing amending the garden beds with compost. This will enable us to open the garden more quickly, while avoiding close social contact. This will be accomplished by having designated teams of 3-4 gardeners working on different days and or times until all work is completed.

The Cheshire Community Food Pantry is in dire need of our support this year. Client demand is high and sadly donations of fresh produce are down.  

Kurtz Farms has stepped up and offered to donate all our vegetable plants this year. We are very grateful for their generosity.

If you are interested in helping with the Mitzvah Garden this year, please contact Larry Rosenfield at garden@tbdcheshire.org


Did you know that if you order goods from Amazon.com, you can place your order by going to https://smile.amazon.com/ and selecting Temple Beth David of Cheshire as the beneficiary; the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to TBD. It's a "no-brainer!"
