Jewish Organic Farming Fellowship in Connecticut for 2016
The Adamah Fellowship is a three-month leadership training program for young adults that integrates organic farming, sustainable living, Jewish learning, community building, and contemplative spiritual practice. Adamah is located in the Connecticut Berkshires, where fellows live surrounded by the beauty of the natural world and a unique all-stream Jewish Retreat Center.
A typical day is spent on our six-acre farm, in our commercial kitchen and on our goat pasture, helping to create a sustainable business that models ecological design, financial viability and social responsibility. Evenings are spent learning about Judaism and sustainability, building community and cultivating leadership skills. Our amazing staff and assortment of visiting faculty will help you listen to and follow your soul’s yearning for ecological and spiritual wholeness, recraft a Jewish identity that sings to you, and build relationships and skills that will sustain you for the rest of your life.
SPRING: April 10th – June 19th
SUMMER: June 15th- August 21st
FALL: August 17th – November 20th
