The Tree of Days
The Jewish Calendar and the Earth

Jill Hammer

Identity & Responsibility, Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality

Jill Hammer’s book, "The Jewish Book of Days: A Companion for All Seasons," is a journey through the Jewish year, exploring how each Jewish festival and minor holiday intertwines with the cycles of nature and the stories of the Jewish people. In this session, Jill will take us through the Jewish year, stopping at each season to describe how that moment teaches us lessons of the earth. We’ll also learn how to include more nature consciousness in our holiday celebrations.
