World Cultures – Biblical Botany

Thursday 04-07-22 12:00 am (Eastern)


Jon Greenberg

A VIRTUAL TOUR with Dr. Jon Greenberg

Dr. Jon Greenberg, an agronomist and Biblical and Talmudic ethnobotanist, is familiar to many of us from his annual Biblical Botany walking tours at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum. In April, as Passover approaches, he will share insights from his research and from Fruits of Freedom, the Torah Flora Hagadah, his botanical guide to the Passover celebration, published in 2021.

Dr. Greenberg will explain how every detail of the ritual Passover meal, or seder, carries deep theological meaning, from the choices of vegetables and recipes for the ritual foods to the use of red or green grapes to make the wine for the meal. Even the table settings will be discussed.

Registration for this program will close at 4:00 PM on the day of the program.

This program is eligible for 1.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU.

This program will be recorded.
