Shoresh Outdoor School – Fall 2019 Session

Give your kids the gift of Jewish learning…in the great outdoors!  The Shoresh Outdoor School is designed to bridge Jewish learning with hands-on garden and nature-based activities.  While exploring Jewish holidays and cycles, mitzvot and rituals, and ethical teachings, students will collectively earn badges (think Scouts!) while being active outdoors, building community, and experiencing moments of deep nature connection.  The Shoresh Outdoor School is pluralistic and open to the many ways that our community members live and learn Jewishly.
