Other than the birth of my son, Passover in the desert was likely the second most incredible experience of my life. Thank you for bringing this community into my life, enriching my life beyond my wildest dreams, and reconnecting me to my totally lost sense of a Judaism I never even knew existed.

Shani Raviv, Passover in the Desert Attendee

This community makes me really excited to reconnect with my Jewish roots and to simply be the best human I can be. Sometimes when I’m here, I can’t actually believe this level of energy and connection is happening.

Craig Miller, Passover in the Desert Attendee

We came to the Desert as a bunch of individuals seeking and left as a group of people connected, inspired, and excited to be jewish. We transformed before our eyes.  Wilderness Torah is healing the Jewish people. Pesach in the Desert provides a space to be curious about Judasim and explore.
