Biblical Garden

At Temple Beth Shalom we create and care for a Garden (of Eden) inspired by the flora and agriculture of the Land of Israel and the Hebrew Bible whose produce, beauty and spaces will enhance the celebration and observance of holy moments and holidays and help us connect with experiences of our ancestors and the stories and values of Torah.

Contact Rabbi Birnholz to share his Jewish garden lessons or garden expertise.   He is excited to have conversations to share how we use the garden to illustrate Jewish values, provide materials for Jewish rituals, and tell Jewish stories. As we do this work, we endeavor to model and reinforce the Jewish values for caring for and sustaining the Earth.
