Seeds, Sprouts & Scriptures: The Jewish-Muslim Youth Planting Project

Join educators Shari Golberg, Asma Ali and urban farmer Sabrina Malach for a planting workshop for Muslim and Jewish youth which incorporates a text-study, and interfaith exchange on Sunday April 28, 2013. Called Seeds, Sprouts & Scriptures: The Jewish-Muslim Youth Planting Project, the workshop will provide an opportunity for young people in both communities to connect with their roots (literally!), by planting seedlings and exploring texts dealing with the shared values of charity, caring for the earth, and compassion for its creatures that are common to both Muslim and Jewish traditions.  The program is for those between the ages of 15 and 30.

This initiative is also made possible by the support of some of our other sponsors: Canadian Association of Jews and Muslims (CAJM), Noor Cultural Centre, WilsonChristen Barristers and The Carrot Cache.


Please note that space is limited, and tickets are $5 per person. To enroll, please contact the Centre for Jewish Studies at 416-978-1624. You can also contact Shari at 416-781-7589.
