May every person get to experience the communal and collective power of prayer, learning and celebration at our 5th annual Beit Midrash this year at the Pearlstone Center in Reisterstown, MD on February 15th-17th!
For the past 4 years, a gathering of brightly spirited, intergenerational and diverse teachers, students, children and individuals have profoundly experienced and impacted the environmental Jewish movement at our annual Shabbaton. Nestled away in a beautiful green landscape, we participate in deep learning, meaningful prayer and connection, and transformational experiences.
Join us this year as we dive into themes devoted to the Jewish calendar.
How does the Jewish calendar provide a spiritual, land-based rhythm for Jewish living?
How do we apply Jewish agricultural values on land, the classroom, and throughout society?
Learn from a talented group of educators, featuring Pardes, Hazon, and Mechon Hadar staff. Classes will explore the 7 year cycle of Shmittah, the connection between rain and fast days, the agricultural roots of our holidays, and more. Eat delicious Kosher food, including Grow & Behold Pastured Meats, and walk away having created beautiful connections to your inner self, other individuals and the holy earth around you. Past participants have shared, “If you wanted to see swords being turned into plowshares, the place to be is at the Beit Midrash. There is great recognition for creating this atmosphere of Torah and Unity to all the participants; in these times of religious disunity within the Jewish people, and at a time when Jews in many places are facing existential threats, it was very inspiring to be in a place of dedication to mutual growth as Jews. A truly glorious, moving and powerful Shabbaton to experience!”
Register for our fabulous event here and get ready to be transformed!
