About Us:

Wilderness Torah awakens and celebrates the earth-based traditions of Judaism to nourish the connections between self, community, earth, and Spirit.

We revitalize Jewish life by reconnecting Jewish traditions to the cycles of nature. We facilitate individual spiritual growth, strengthen multi-generational community, and connect people to nature through land-based festivals, rites of passage, and sustainable life skills education.

Our programs cultivate understanding of Judaism’s earth-based roots, inspire appreciation for Creation, and offer skills that empower participants to engage in Tikkun Olam (healing the world) by living sustainably in the modern world.

Resources and Additional Information

Wilderness Torah has offered its core programs since 2007 — an annual cycle of experiential land-based festivals, including Sukkot on the Farm, Passover in the Desert, Shavuot First Fruits Festival, and Tu B’Shvat in the Redwoods — where we gather as a pluralistic, multi-generational community to celebrate the seasons and Jewish traditions in their original earth-based context.

During these festivals, we camp, eat and pray together, learn about the connections between Jewish spirituality and environmental awareness, offer sustainable living skills workshops, and celebrate the cycle of the seasons with joyous singing and celebration. We do this while contextualizing the holidays in their ancient earth-based roots in order to renew the earth-centered meaning and inspiration of these festivals.

Tu B'Shvat in the Redwoods
As the days begin to lengthen, we pause during Tu B'Shvat to celebrate the unseen awakening of spring. Deep within the trees, the sap begins to flow as the trees start their cycle anew.
