Ethical Foods Co-Op


In Jewish tradition, the values of shmirat haguf, or, taking care of our bodies, and being shomrei adamah, or, guardians of the earth, are essential to living a Jewish life. One of the many ways we live out these values at the J is by offering the Houston community opportunities to take part in our Community Supported Agriculture program and our Meat Buying Club.
