THE STORY:

YUGNTRUF-YOUTH FOR YIDDISH INC wrote -

The Yiddish Farm Education Center provides an immersive and transformative experience. After two weeks of Yiddish classes, farm chores, celebrations, and group-building activities, we can already speak Yiddish. 

Our fields of garlic scapes have just sprouted, and we plan to harvest 10,000 pounds of organic hardneck garlic during the second half of July. In order to store and dry the garlic, we need to build a barn. We, the students at the Yiddish Farm Summer Program, have taken on the challenge of raising $10,000 this month, more than half the total cost.


Yiddish Farm's values are...
1. Speak Yiddish: We value Yiddish as a living language and strive to broaden its role in daily life. Living on an organic farm provides new contexts in which to use the language and bring it into modernity.
2. Build Community: Our programs bring together people of various ages and backgrounds, including native Yiddish-speakers and Yiddish students. Our ultimate goal is a pluralistic Yiddish-speaking community living off of the land and serving as a resource for the greater Jewish community.
3. Live Sustainably: By growing our own food organically and educating people about where their food comes from, we hope to help people live more in harmony with the environment.

We need your help to make our community and our work more sustainable!
Thank you!
