Adamah at Home

March 11, 2024 @ 8:00 am March 29, 2024 @ 5:00 pm


Applications are Open

Adamah at Home is a 3-week program to build food skills, ecological connection, and Jewish community. We will support students in getting their hands dirty: growing food on balconies or in backyards, preparing/preserving food in the kitchen, and exploring their local food system.

Open to ages 18+ who can commit to 8-10 hours a week of live video learning and connection. Dates subject to change.

We are offering this program at a sliding scale. Systems of power disproportionately impact accessibility to programs like these for people of marginalized identities. We deeply value the leadership and participation of Jews of diverse backgrounds and experiences, related to class, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender, ability and more. We strongly encourage Jews of marginalized identities to apply.

This has been an incredible experience and has given me a new framework to work with as I continue to learn about Judaism, sustainability, and agriculture

Program Costs

We are offering payment options for this program at a sliding scale between $500-$1,000, with no one turned away for lack of funds. We want Adamah’s programs to be accessible, and we recognize that the current climate presents additional financial challenges. There is no stigma attached to paying at a lower rate, and no one but the financial team will know this information.

If you are able, please pay the full price or as close as you can. If you are participating as part of an organization or institution, consider asking for their support in paying full program fee.

Refunds will not be available once the program begins.


On Monday-Thursday, each day typically has a morning component (9-11am Eastern), a late afternoon class (around 5pm Eastern) and an evening program (around 8pm).

On Fridays we incorporate programming to end the week and transition to Shabbat.

Testimonials and Expectations

What you can expect from us:

  • 18 years of Adamah wisdom
  • Pluralism and inclusion across identities
  • Connection with others across distance
  • One-on-one support with your at-home kitchen and garden projects – from window sills to backyards
  • Thoughtful facilitation of deep conversations on Judaism, food, land, and ourselves

Participating has reinforced for me my desire to tread lighter on the earth, my desire to return to cooking/baking from scratch more and be more intentional with my prayer practice.

What you will leave with:

  • Increased knowledge of sustainability, ecology, agriculture, composting, waste reduction, food systems, and food justice.
  • Increase confidence in accessing Jewish text, ritual, and prayer.
  • Increased confidence in growing plants and pickling.
  • Ability to articulate connections between Judaism and sustainability.
  • Greater understanding of Jewish spiritual perspectives.

I reignited parts of my Jewish identity and experience that had been quite dormant. I am proud and grateful to have been part of this new experience.

What we expect of you

  • Your focused attention in online gatherings
  • Commitment to follow through with the program
  • Willingness to sit with the discomfort that sometimes comes with learning
  • Openness to learning with people whose identities (Jewish practice, gender, race, etc.) differ from your own
