Hazon Food Conference

December 25 – 28, 2008
Asilomar Conference and Retreat Center
On the Monterey Peninsula , CA

The new Jewish food movement is taking root and we invite you to be a part of it. On Shabbat Chanukah 2008, along the white sand beaches and forests of the Monterey Peninsula , the Jewish food community will gather to celebrate and explore how we make food choices in the light of our tradition and contemporary life. We will come together from all over North America and Israel as a cross denominational group of young, not so young, singles, couples, and families. Our group will include rabbis, farmers, educators, chefs, writers, students and enthusiasts who will teach and learn from each other about food from farm to table. The conference experience will cover the spectrum of food interests, from health and sustainability to justice, Jewish tradition, spirit, and enjoyment.
