Calling all nature lovers, hikers, farming enthusiasts, educators, students and proud eco-nerds: the annual Teva Seminar on Jewish Environmental Education is coming up this June 12-17.
Now in its 18th year, the Teva Seminar (which is run by the Teva Learning Alliance) is the go-to gathering for Jewish environmental inspiration, celebrity eco-speakers, professional development (a.k.a. the chance to sharpen your environmental knowledge and skills), and lots of outdoorsy fun. Participants spend the week learning in one of the following tracks, then settle in for a spirited and rejuvenating Shabbat celebration:
- Camp & Wilderness: Develop your technical outdoor skills and eco-knowledge, and deepen your spiritual connection to Judaism and the natural world.
- Eco-Arts & Community Education: Enjoy hands-on Jewish environmental learning and find out how to bring the Jewish holidays and agricultural cycles alive in your school and community.
- Organic Gardening & Farming Education: Facilitated by Repair the World grantee-partner, Jewish Farm School, this track focuses on practical agricultural skills and the connections between Jewish tradition and farming.
- Environmental Leadership & Organizing: Learn to be a leader in the environmental movement and explore environmental issues while honing your ability to speak about and organize action around them.
