THE STORY:

In 2007, four people from the Bay Area decided to go to a farm to build a sukkah. That idea has since blossomed into one of the most inovative Jewish start-ups in the country.  I am proud to be part of its growth and continue to raise funds to ensure its success.  

I was lucky. Raised in an exciting and vibrant Jewish community, my parents helped launch a progressive synagogue in the city where I was raised and an incredible Rabbi, Susan Talve, instilled deeply held Jewish values that I still hold today. 

My summers were spent camping in the North Woods on the border of the U.S. and Canada.  I have 

Would I ever find a community or home that could meld my Judaism to the love of the outdoors? Yes. The dream really has come true. 

When I first met Zelig Golden and Julie Wolk and the other founders of Wilderness Torah, I knew I had found my new spiritual home.  And now, as a board member, I work to make sure that to its unique programs can be open to everyone, regardless of the ability to pay for programs.

Wilderness Torah is raising $60,000 by the end of the year. This Crowdrise campaign by the community  has a goal of raising $15,000 of that total from new and long-time supporters.

In a nutshell, Wilderness Torah believes that the ancient roots of Judaism hold wisdom for our modern, disconnected world. We create inclusive Jewish experiences that reconnect Jewish ritual to the land and powerfully reconnect people across a wide spectrum to Judaism.

Demand is skyrocketing! Every program is selling out; communities across the Bay Area, the U.S. and internationally ask for programming; and participants hail from 28 states and 7 countries.

However, in order to keep program fees affordable and accessible to everyone, I need your help. 

Please give a generous donation to support this work today. 

Thanks!
