Remington College Columbia Campus holds 3 Lives Blood Drive

Remington College

Remington College is urging people in the Columbia area to donate blood at its upcoming 3 Lives blood drive, a national effort to recruit minority blood donors and help supply local hospitals with blood. The effort has resulted in more than 12,000 pints of blood collected since the program began – that’s enough blood to save more than 36,000 lives! Why focus on minority blood donors? According to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, African American donors provide blood with unique antigens that are vital for people with sickle cell disease - which affects 70,000 people in the U.S. – as well as patients with other blood disorders. While the focus of 3 Lives is to highlight the need for minority blood donors, everyone is encouraged to give blood at the event; anyone 17 years or older and 110 pounds can donate blood. All the blood collected will go to LOCAL hospitals and medical centers to help people in the community. Please help the cause and join us to donate blood on Tuesday, June 30 from 9 am to 2 pm. Posted by Wellons Communications on behalf of Remington College.

The Order and the Beauty of the Jewish Garden in the Roman Empire

306 Flora Dr, Columbia, South Carolina 29223

Are you enjoying growing your tomatoes this summer? Did you know that there were particularly Jewish gardens in the past? In this presentation, Dr. John Mandsager will show how early rabbinic Jewish literature (ca. 3rd century C.E.) presents a sophisticated spatial vision of Jewish rural life. He will discuss the garden in particular to show how the early rabbis imagine agricultural space to be well-ordered, while visually communicating the Jewish farmer’s Jewishness. Rabbinic attention to geometric precision in the creation of garden beds, in order to abide by the biblical prohibition against mixing crops in the same space (Lev 19:19 and Deut 22:9-11), and with an eye towards order and beauty, demonstrates the scrupulousness of the Jewish farmer, and overlaps and competes with gardens found in Roman villas. Roman spaces and Roman authors discussing the villa are overt in their presentation of aesthetic spatial ideals, and villas mixed ornamental and agricultural growth to utilitarian and aesthetic effect: in this presentation, he will show that the rabbinic attention to spatial details creates gardens that would not be foreign to Romans, yet emphasizes a particularly Jewish approach to gardening. The garden as a whole visually demonstrates the aesthetic refinement and managerial skill of the estate-owner, while the rabbinic garden additionally communicates the adherence to biblical law that marks the space as distinctly Jewish.
