A letter of welcome from Rabbi Jeremy Kalmanofsky, Congregation Ansche Chesed:
"R. Hezekiah said in the name of Rav: In the world to come, each person will have to give accounting before God for failing to enjoy all the pleasures of the world. Rabbi Elazar paid close attention to this teaching, and was sure to spend the money so that he could taste at least one of every kind of produce each year."
-Jerusalem Talmud Kiddushin 66b
What a wonderful teaching! The world is good and its fruits and vegetables are good. You should enjoy them! We at Ansche Chesed are proud to be the first synagogue to host a CSA, and we're glad to host it again for the 7th year, helping you enjoy tuv
ha'aretz, the best of the earth, in a way that is good for the earth. Congratulations to those who plant, those who water, those who nurture, those who harvest, those who deliver, those who cook and those who eat.
With best wishes,
Jeremy Kalmanofsky and the entire community of Ansche Chesed
