Judaism & Nature: Re-Connecting the Jewish People to the Earth

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We are not the Jews that our parents and grandparents are or were; today’s generation recognizes the importance of being outdoors, connecting with nature, and honoring our bodies through exercise. What is it about nature that inspires us to consider who or what created it?Together the group will learn how to make fire using the traditional method of flint & steel as well as the ancient method of bow drill (a.k.a. rubbing two sticks together). We will also learn about some of the opportunities we have here in South Florida to get out into nature, to explore, to find G-d, and to connect with fellow Jews.  During the second half of the program, we will go outside for a 20-minute experiential nature walk to explore the nature that surrounds us right here and now.
