Their 2015 trip will be to see fantastic gardens in and around Philadelphia, the cradle of American horticulture. Planting, growing, and harvesting are fundamental to Judaism. Agriculture ties Jews to the seasons and to the land, through holidays and life cycle events. In this presentation, you’ll learn about connections between Judaism and fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, trees, shrubs, and more. Nan will talk about traditions and practices that easily translate to home gardens. She will discuss how easy it is to grow most, if not all, of the plants mentioned in the Torah and many more that have come to play a role in the traditions of more modern times. Nan will even talk about some ancient traditions that deserve to be revived. Reservations are NOT required.

* Waters of Eden: Mikveh Waters of Eden: Mikveh

The La Jolla Mikvah, located on the campus of Adat Yeshrun on La Jolla Scenic Drive North, has graciously extended an invitation to Waters of Eden to use its serene Mikvah at select times in the coming months. These are excellent opportunities to experience the ritual in the comfort and tranquility of a beautiful venue. The upcoming dates are: Monday, December 29 Wednesday, January 21 Rabbi Bohm is available to accompany women to the mikvah between 12:30 pm and an hour before sunset on these dates. The opportunity for women in our community to immerse in this local, private and well-appointed mikvah offers a new gateway to this profoundly moving and meaningful ritual, even though our ocean is accessible as a natural mikvah, and some San Diegans choose to travel to the AJU Mikvah in Los Angeles. Waters of Eden welcomes each woman who would like to immerse for any celebratory or healing purpose, to meet with Rabbi Bohm and arrange her uniquely transformative ceremony. Reasons to immerse may include celebration of engagement, wedding, pregnancy, birth, professional or academic achievement, trip to Israel, or accomplishment of a goal. Other reasons may include healing after a personal loss, a challenging medical diagnosis, the end of a relationship, sheloshim or yahrzeit after the death of a loved one, or in connection with a Jewish life cycle event, Rosh Chodesh (new month) or the taking on of a new mitzvah.
