Sat, 01/27/2018 - 12:30pm

Led by Steve Jones, “Walk the Talk” is a series of guided outdoor experiences in which participants learn about “reading” the natural landscape as a text. Participants walk for about an hour and a half in the nearby Wissahickon forest, observe the elements of the natural world, learn about ecological relationships, and study short Jewish texts.

This Shabbat walk occurs 4 days before Tu B'Shevat, a time in the calendar when we note that the sap is rising in the seemingly sleeping forest, and we can sense the forest coming back to life through the cold.

All ages are welcome to meet at Mishkan Shalom after services at 12:30, then carpool to a starting point for the walk in the nearby woods. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and sensible clothes for the outdoors.                       

                   $5/session (members & non-members). We will not collect money on Shabbat.
