Get a taste of hands-on, nature-connected Jewish learning for all ages. Together we’ll be singing, playing, studying and creating as we welcome in Elul and start the High Holiday journey. Shofars will be blowing, adults and children will be playing and all us will walk away feeling more connected to ourselves, the forest, and the traditions of the Jewish people.

Activities include:

  • Experiential, soulful Jewish prayer in the outdoors

  • Multi-layered, inclusive, egalitarian Jewish text study

  • Embodied, full sensory connection to the natural world

  • Hands-on projects using natural materials to create Jewish mindfulness objects
