ABOUT KAVANAH GARDEN PROGRAMS

“The Kavanah Garden is a place that brings the words of Torah to life.”
-Program Participant

“Thanks again for the [Kavanah field]trip, it stood out in my mind as the best trip I’ve taken in over 20 years of teaching!!!  I look forward to coming back in the future.”
-Day School Teacher

“My kids walk away from the summer with a greater knowledge and appreciation of how different foods grow and are harvested, all while doing a mitzvah of helping to feed those in need and having an amazing time while doing it.  Kavanah Garden is a little slice of fantastic in our busy urban lives.”
-Family Drop-In Parent

 The Kavanah Garden rocks!  I have learned so much at the Kavanah Garden, like bees are fuzzy and wasps are smooth, millipedes tickle when they walk on your arm, and what a walnut picked off of a walnut tree looks like inside.  I like the information that’s listed all around the garden, especially the stuff about nature and Judaism, in Hebrew and English.”

ABOUT BELA FARM PROGRAMS

“Thanks so much for putting on an amazing gathering yesterday! It was everything I could have asked for in an initial program for the season: Great friends, great food, and excellent learning around both bees and Torah. After being away for 5 months now, it made me realize how much I value the kind of Judaism you all are trying to foster through your work.  Your lesson around the Jewish calendar was fascinating and informative!  You are truly inspirational, and it makes me happy to know that Shoresh continues to grow in exciting new directions. Kol Hakavod!”
