What happens to sacred text when it has reached the end of its useful life?  Come find out how some traditions retire their sacred texts as we are led in a Jewish version of this ceremony by visiting Torah scribe Rabbi Kevin Hale, and in a multi-faith ceremony by the Middlebury College Chaplains.  After the texts are buried you are invited to remain at The Knoll to hear from Rabbi Hale about the work of a scribe and how sacred texts are handled in the Jewish tradition.

In the event of rain, the burial will still take place at the Knoll, but the talk will be in Bi-Hall 219 from 5:30-6:00 pm.  Please dress for the weather.
