Opportunity for young adults (20’s) with a passion for Jewish farming.

WIJC  is spreading this  notice on behalf of the Isabella Freeman Jewish Retreat Center. Applications are now being accepted for Adamah Fellowships.

The Adamah Fellowship

Where else can you say a blessing while using recycled vegetable oil to fuel a truck that is filled with organic produce and naturally fermented kosher pickles?

Adamah connects people to their roots:
to the land, to community, to Judaism, and to themselves by providing educational programs and products in order to build a more sustainable world.Programs at Adamah integrate physical, social, spiritual, Jewish and ecological realms in order to inspire participants to a life of service – to the Jewish community and to the earth. We emphasize hands-on experience and peer leadership to empower participants with skills and confidence to make a difference, and we offer positive ways to connect to the core Jewish principles of awe and gratitude, which inspire participants well after they leave.

Now in its seventh successful year, the Adamah Fellowship is a three-month leadership training program for Jewish young adults in their 20s that integrates organic farming, sustainable living, Jewish learning, community building and contemplative spiritual practice. 2012 Applications are now available.
