Passover in the Desert: Passages

Type of Event Religious Services
Description Pre-Festival Ceremony Options (Vision Quest + Seders) | April 14–17
Panamint Valley, near Death Valley, SE California

Each year, we Jews retell our core story — our Passover journey from slavery to freedom. The mythical passage of the ancient Israelites from Egypt (literally, the “narrows”) mirrors our own passages that we mark in our lives.

This spring, step into your Exodus experience and discover transformation and liberation with the expansive desert as your guide. For the first time, Wilderness Torah offers pre-Festival options to support deep nature connection, freedom in the desert wilderness, and opportunities to honor Passover in a deeply embodied way.

Passover in the Desert Festival | April 17–24
• Welcoming, all-ages village experience in the wilderness
• Jewish learning and ritual with esteemed teachers
• Music, yoga, desert hikes, sacred fire, and ancient skills
• Organic, kosher food, prepared by Chef Baruch Schwadron
• New Teen program

Pre-Festival Overnight Vision Quest | April 15–17
Solo journeys into the desert are at the core of Judaism. Those who are called will embark on an overnight ceremony supported by the village to be alone, fast, recover your ancient wildness, and pray. Limited to 12 participants.

Pre-Festival Seders & Chag (holiday) | April 14–17
Traditional Passover holiday observance and first- and second-night seders like you’ve never experienced!

Passover in the Desert is a rugged wilderness experience. Participants should be comfortable in the outdoors and committed to a shared group experience. Prior camping experience is recommended.
