Ten years ago, while working as an environmental Lawyer for the Center for Food Safety, I clarified my vision for an earth-based Judaism and made a big change in my life to co-found Wilderness Torah. I could not have imageined how far we would have come in ten years, forging the Earth-Based Judaism Movement and building incredible community.
Now move than ever, we need full spectrum community support - we have moved well beyond the start up phase and are maturing into a profound organization that supports regional Bay Area community and a burgeoning International movement to awaken Judaism's earth-based roots. And never has there been a more important time to support earth-connected, authentic, vibrant frames of youth mentorship, communty engagement, leadership training, and a vision for how we create healthy, relient people and vibrant, regenerative community in uncertain times.
Please join me and Wilderness Torah as we embark on second decade of revitalizing our Jewish communities!
Forging the Earth Based Judaism Movement

Why are we fundraising?
Wilderness Torah creates incredible experiences that powerfully reconnect Jewish ritual to the land and build community - ancient wisdom that offers much for our disconnected, 21st century culture, and has had a big impact on our lives!
Your donation directly goes to keep program fees affordable, especially for young adults, lower-income families and elders. Wilderness Torah raises 70% of their budget through fundraising each year. Crowdrise offers Wilderness Torah community members the chance to share their love and support with a much wider community. In November, together we’re raising $25k for this great organization.
Please give a donation to support this work today. Thank you!
