The Jewish Holiday Cycle – Ecological, Historical & Spiritual Dimensions
Jewish law and celebration have long reflected a deep connection to land, specifically to agricultural land in Israel. In fact, almost every Jewish holiday has at its core an agricultural connection. Exploring those values in addition to the holiday’s historic and religious themes, allows the teacher to provide a comprehensive Jewish educational experience that combines ethics, history and spirituality.
Use this table as a reference or as the basis for a discussion on the connection between the Jewish year and natural ecological and agricultural cycles.
