Kabbalat Shabbat at Urban Adamah
Shabbat Teachings

Wilderness Torah Shabbat

Every seven days we are instructed to observe Shabbat from sundown to sundown. Wilderness Torah Shabbat celebrations create a big tent filled with people from all kinds of religious and cultural backgrounds, bound together by a connection to nature. In all of our shabbat gatherings we will honor this day of rest with music, song, dancing, dynamic prayer, wisdom teachings, and meditation.

We are committed to egalitarianism and the total inclusion of all people, and all are welcome to join us.
