Adamah at Home Winter Series

Mondays, January 22-March 4 from 8-9:30PM EST
Zoom / Online

RITUAL, COLLABORATIVE LEARNING, & HANDS-ON SKILLS

The 2024 Adamah at Home Winter Series is a 7-week course to build food skills and cultivate Jewish ecological wisdom in community.

Sessions are on Mondays 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm from January 22 through March 4, 2024. Join us for a single session, the whole series, or anywhere in between.

We will dig into content from the Adamah Farm Fellowship program where we have been cultivating the soil and the soul for the past twenty years. Over five hundred fellowship alumni have gone on to be earth-connected Rabbis, Jewish-connected farmers, food justice advocates, composters, healers, and everything in between.  

Not everyone has the ability to join us on the land in Falls Village for the three-month residential fellowship, so we are offering the winter series to be accessed at home via the internet. Each session will blend the elements that we’ve found so transformative here on the farm – ritual, collaborative learning, and hands-on skills. Click through the menu below to learn more about program costs, session descriptions, the educators, and other details about the series.



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

This program is offered on a sliding scale.  

Each session is costly to produce, as is sustaining the farm that provides the foundation of our work. If you are able, please contribute as generously as your budget allows. We recommend a minimum of $126 for the series (or $18/session you plan to attend). If cost is a burden, we’re excited to have you regardless of how much you contribute.

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. 

Adamah at Home welcomes folks who are new to these endeavors, as well as those with previous experience who wish to expand their skill set. Alumni are also welcome!
