Wilderness Torah continues to grow exponentially each year,
with tremendous impact!
Wilderness Torah served more than 2,000 participants through an annual cycle of four holiday festivals, year-round youth programs, and community programs for Jewish institutions.
Attendance grew at festivals by 50% from 2013 to 2015 (675 to over 2,000 participants).
B’hootz, our Sunday School in the Woods for 5-11 year olds, sold out for the ’14-15 season at 25% larger than the previous season (55 kids vs. 43) and a 15-family waiting list.
I am bringing home a greater sense of working and living with my higher self and connection to spiritual practice and community. I feel grateful to know Wilderness Torah community and these excursions exist as I continue to grow. Passover in the Desert brought together such wonderful folks, created a space in which anyone could share openly.
