The Sweet Taste of Zero Waste: A Waste Free Shabbat Dinner

You’re invited to Repair the World Philadelphia and Grad Network’s The Sweet Taste of Zero Waste: A Zero Waste Shabbat Dinner on November 30th.


We will be discussing waste and the social and political implications of who gets to define waste. What even is ethical consumption? What does Judaism teach us about the radical acts of reducing and reusing in our world of single-use items and planned obsolescence?


All this over a delicious vegetarian Shabbat dinner with new and old friends!

Our Work

From underfunded schools that scrounge for funds for copy paper to the highest poverty and obesity rates among big cities in the US, Philly faces some dire challenges in confronting education and food injustices. Repair the World: Philadelphia partners with local and community-based organizations like the West Philadelphia Alliance for Children and Broad Street Ministry as it seeks to build a kinder and more equitable city.
