The Urban Adamah Fellowship curriculum is designed to equip Fellows with the tools to become agents of positive change in their own lives and in their communities. You will immerse yourself in four unique service components: earth service, community service, service of the heart, and service of the mind.
The 3-month Urban Adamah Fellowship integrates urban organic farming, social justice work, and progressive Jewish living and learning for young adults ages 21-31. Twelve to fourteen Fellows are selected each season to operate the farm and education center, intern with community organizations addressing issues at the intersection of poverty, food security and environmental stewardship, and learn an approach to Jewish tradition that opens the heart and builds joyful community. 2015 Fellowships are available during the spring (March 1–May 22), summer (June 7–August 21) and fall (September 1–November 20) with admission done on a rolling basis until all positions are filled.
