Avodah (Work Exchange Program)

Read below for information about our Avodah Program

We are now accepting Avodah applications on a rolling basis until Sunday, March 26 or until all positions are filled. Avodah fills quickly. Read the position descriptions below and apply early for greatest choice of positions.

This year we are excited to be offering the first- and second-night seders in addition to our main festival. If you are interested in attending the seders by doing Avodah please refer to the Chag positions. All other Avodah positions allow you to receive a Festival ticket and not a Seder ticket.

If you are you considering applying to the Overnight Wilderness Solo, reserve your spot today! Those doing the Overnight Wilderness Solo may only apply to the following Avodah positions to receive a Festival ticket: Random Tasks, Setup, Loading, Breakdown, and Unloading.

Avodah is intended for those who want to serve and have financial need. Passover in the Desert is reasonably priced on a sliding scale. The low end of the sliding scale does not cover the full costs to produce the festival. With this in mind, we ask that you consider your ability to pay before applying for Avodah.
Avodah enables folks to help create the village, and is a great way to save money, meet new friends, and play an important role at the festival.
Each Avodah role is integral to the health of the whole system. Please read through our Avodah Terms & Conditions before applying for Avodah.

FULL Avodah: 23 hours of service for a $36 ticket
HALF Avodah: 12 hours of service for a $200 ticket

* Combine two 12–hour (HALF) positions to create a FULL
* Combine two 7–hour (QUARTER) positions to create a HALF

HALF Avodah: 12 hours of service for a $200 ticket

* Combine two 12–hour (HALF) positions to create a FULL

IMPORTANT: Each Avodah role is integral to the health of the whole system. The hours you contribute with Avodah serve as payment for the event. When you are absent or late for your shifts, or you do not arrive at the festival by the agreed-upon time, your absence affects many others. Therefore, if you do not fulfill your agreed hours, we will ask you to pay the difference after the festival at the rate of $20 per hour.

CANCELLATION: If you register for your Avodah position and then cancel after Thursday, March 30 (one week before festival preparations begin), you will be required to pay the lowest adult registration fee ($375) and will not be allowed to participate in Avodah at future festivals.

Pricing Philosophy

Read below for information about our pricing philosophy


A: Wilderness Torah strives to provide the highest quality experience at the most affordable price, allowing our programs to remain as inclusive as possible. Our festivals are unique and incredible experiences, made possible by the priceless contributions of everyone there.

The reality is that program fees typically make up 1/3% of our income; we raise the other 2/3 through grants and donations from individuals. Our festivals cost much more to produce than we receive in revenue.

Although it is more sustainable for nonprofits to rely more heavily on program fees to earn money, Wilderness Torah is dedicated to keeping our prices as low as possible. We offer Avodah (work exchange), sliding scale rates, and family and elder discounts.

Do you know foundations or individuals who might be interested in helping fund us? Please let us know — or make a donation today.

A: Real cost is Wilderness Torah’s break even point—how much it costs per person to put on our programs. The real cost for Passover in the Desert 2017 is $725 per person.

A: Creating a village from scratch requires a lot of resources! We do everything we can to keep expenses low. The program fee includes all the background work to create the village experience, as well as almost everything you’ll need at the festival:

  • Water, infrastructure, and catered, organic meals
  • A beautiful campsite (permit fees to the Bureau of Land Management)
  • Shabbat and holiday ritual
  • Learning
  • Youth programming
  • Daily meditation and movement opportunities
  • A part of eight staff members’ time — the equivalent of one full-time staff member for a year — to plan and manage the festival, from logistics to marketing
  • An onsite ground crew of nearly 20 staff, chefs, and builders
  • Permits, fees, insurance, storage, transportation infrastructure, fuel, and other overhead costs
  • And so much more
A: We are blessed to have a wonderful community of volunteers for each of our festivals. Along with our Avodah program, volunteers help us reduce costs.

We also offer a sliding scale fee structure. We are committed to enabling those with fewer financial resources to be able to share in this community.

We thank you for looking honestly at your ability to pay as close to the high end as possible; when you register at a higher-price level, you enable lower-income members of our community to register at fee levels they can afford.

For those for whom the lower part of the scale is still out of reach, we make an effort to offer extensive Avodah opportunities. These make up nearly a third of all registrations.

A: This festival is a great bargain compared to other festivals of similar length! Our festivals include professionally prepared breakfasts and dinners of fresh, organic, delicious food; a broad array of insightful classes taught by exceptional teachers; an inspiring community; a caring medical team; inclusive and unique ritual and prayer; and more.

At other events of similar length, camping and meals are often not included in the program fee. Large, commercial festivals are also able to decrease costs through corporate sponsorships.

A: Please take a moment to think about what this kind of unique celebration means to you. If you are able, please pay at the high end of the sliding scale. We appreciate your generosity and understanding of both the value and cost of this amazing program!

There are many ways to contribute to the festival program by offering your skills and gifts. Please visit the Program Offerings page to learn more.

If you are able, you can also make a tax-deductible donation in addition to your program fee to help us continue to offer affordable programs.
