Wilderness Torah Programs

Weaving Jewish wisdom, wilderness skills, nature awareness, challenges, and community building experiences, Wilderness Torah mentors take youth on an embodied journey of discovery. B’hootz focuses on the passions of children grades K-5, while B’naiture helps youth mark the transition into their teen years with an exciting and authentic rite of passage experience, and our Teen Shomrim Program offers mentoring opportunities for teens.

Wilderness Torah brings earth-based Jewish education to community institutions across the greater Bay Area. Our mentors take Jewish day school youth on multi-day camping trips, and provide daylong family experiences for synagogues and JCCs.

Wilderness Torah fosters regenerative Jewish community where mentorship and leadership training are key to creating transformative village-building experiences. For our pilgrimage festivals, we shepherd a “village council” through a 3-month leadership training program that prepares and empowers a circle of community leaders to co-create village life.
MORE INFO
Celebrate the ancient Jewish pilgrimage festivals through an annual cycle of experiential, earth-based events. During Passover, Shavuot, Sukkot and Tu B’shvat, we come together as a multi-generational village to celebrate the seasons and Jewish traditions in their original nature-based context.

Testimonials

I have attended two of Wilderness Torah’s events. They have been transformative and have brought me closer to my culture, my community, and myself. They are an organization on the leading edge of making the connection between the role of religion, culture, and sustainability.
