In January 2011, Rodef Shalom Congregation established an edible container garden and a Jewish education program for preschool children, religious school children and interested congregants as part of its Life Long Learning Program. This project is funded by an Incubator Grant from the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and follows the URJ Initiative “Green Table, Just Table”. Based on “seed to table” principles, the container garden consisting of edible vegetables, plants, fruits and nuts is planted, tended to and harvested on the Deaktor Terrace and has a prominent spot near its world renown Biblical Botanical Garden. An edible container garden exemplifies the Jewish value of healthier and sustainable food choices and strengthens the traditional Jewish connection between food and social responsibility. The education and hands-on activities are designed to engage all generations and make use of the master-gardener resources the congregation has available among its current membership. Along with the edible garden, a composting program in line with the vision of the Jewish Food Movement has been implemented in two ways: worm composting for the preschool and backyard composting for the Rodef Shalom Congregation kitchen.
