Your Chance to be a Jewish Farmer and Live in the Woods

ADAMAH: The Jewish Environmental Fellowship is a three month leadership training program for Jewish young adults — ages 20–29 — that integrates organic farming, sustainable living, Jewish learning, leadership, and contemplative spiritual practice. Participants live together at Isabella Freedman: Jewish Retreat Center, located in northwest Connecticut, just south of the Berkshires.

Dates for 2006 Fellowships:
Summer: May 29 to Sept. 4
Fall: Sept. 10 to Dec. 10

Applications are currently being accepted for both summer and fall 2006 fellowships.

Personal pitch: I’ve known many chill Jews over the years who have experienced the Adamah program. It’s a great opportunity to live in a Jewish community outside of the city. People who do the program come from all different religious and educational backgrounds. Oh yeah and you get to milk goats!
