A Jewish project supporting sustainable agriculture has added eight new sites in North America. For Tuv Haâ€™Aretz, that brings to 18 the number of synagogues and JCCs in North America and Israel taking part in its Community-Supported Agriculture network. Tuv Haâ€™Aretz members purchase an entire seasonâ€™s worth of organic produce in advance from a local farmer, who delivers the food once a week to their synagogue or Jewish community center. The plan supports local, sustainable farming in line with the values of eco-kashrut, an expanded understanding of kosher food as including food that is ethically fit to eat. The new sites are in Chicago; Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; Washington, D.C.; White Plains, N.Y.; Lancaster, Pa.; and Vancouver, B.C. Tuv Haâ€™Aretz is a program of Hazon, known for its bike rides and hikes in support of Jewish environmentalism.
