More about this awesome organization:
Wilderness Torah creates inclusive Jewish experiences -- multi-generational holiday retreats; outdoor youth education; and programs for Jewish institutions -- that reconnect Jewish ritual to the land. Wilderness Torah believes that the ancient roots of Judaism hold wisdom for our modern, disconnected world.
Since 2007, Wilderness Torah has grown exponentially, now serving 2,000 people a year. Named one of the nation's most innovative Jewish nonprofits four years in a row by Slingshot Fund (2011-15), Wilderness Torah is creating meaningful Jewish experiences for people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of Jewish observance.
Demand is skyrocketing. Wilderness Torah served 50% more people in 2014 over 2013. Every program is selling out; institutions across the Bay Area and beyond ask for programming; and participants hail from 28 states and 7 countries.
But in order to keep program fees affordable, especially for young adults and lower-income families and elders, Wilderness Torah needs donations. In fact, fundraising accounts for 60% of its budget each year.
Wilderness Torah needs to raise $60,000 by the end of year from individuals who want to see this work continue to thrive.
