Wilderness Torah’s Training Institute


Wilderness Torah’s Training Institute Begins This Summer!

Wednesday, July 20 to Sunday, July 24
Felton, California (Santa Cruz Mountains near SF Bay Area)
Connect to Nature • Build Village • Mentor Youth • Awaken Earth-Based Judaism

For four days in the wilds, take a journey of discovery in nature-connection, renewing earth-based Jewish traditions, and building holistic community through mentoring.

After the training, you can take home Wilderness Torah’s Youth Mentorship Curriculum Toolkit, which supports participants in six interwoven skill areas:

1.    Hebrew calendar as nature connection & cultural operating system

2.    Jewish values for mentoring youth & connecting to nature

3.    Jewish blessings, songs, and prayers for village-building & earth-connection

4.    Core routines of nature connection

5.    Introduction to primitive skills & nature crafts

6.    Challenges & edge experiences that support human growth

All who wish to learn about earth-based Judaism and Wilderness Torah’s nature-mentorship models are welcome to join. This training is great for Jewish institutions looking to expand their nature-based programming; Jewish educators and lay leaders who want to offer this kind of teaching; and those interested in their own education. Registration is now open! 

Jewish LearningWorks is a proud provider of consultative support to Wilderness Torah in the creation of this program.
