Howdy and thanks for reading on!
I'm part of this Crowdrise campaign tp help Wilderness Torah raise $18,000 of the $60,000 total we've set out to raise by Dec. 31. Please join me, other board members, staff, and community members as we secure a strong financial future for WT!
Why am I doing this? Because I believe deeply in the work and impact Wilderness Torah is having in the world.
Wilderness Torah believes Judasim's ancient roots and values animate and bring deep meaning to modern life. WT's inclusive Jewish experiences powerfully reconnect people to where they come from and where they want to go.
Programs include multi-generational holiday festivals, ground-breaking K-12 outdoor Jewish educational programs, and, starting in 2016, a national Training Institute to bring WT's innovative community building models to people across the country and around the world.
Since 2007, Wilderness Torah has grown and grown, now serving over 2,000 people annually. WT's been named one of the nation's most innovative Jewish not-for-profits by the Slingshot Fund every year since 2011. We have consistently sold out every recent festival and now welcome participants from across the Bay Area, as well as from 28 other states and 7 countries.
In order to keep program fees affordable -- especially for young adults, lower-income families and elders -- Wilderness Torah relies on community support. Fundraising today accounts for 2/3 of our budget. Please lend your support to the Jewish meaning WT is bringing to the world.
