Jewish Experiential and Nature Educators Fellowship: Jewish education has come of age in the 21st Century with the transformation of day schools, religious schools and summer camps into meaningful institutions of educational change – the type of change that leads to the development of creative and committed Jewish adults. Driving this transformation is a new type of Jewish educator who is equally as adept in engaging students in a classroom as on a camping trip. And the tools of this new educator are the skills and techniques found in the fields of Experiential Education and Outdoor Education. This experiential training program will prepare you to be a Jewish educator who is able to transform the outdoors into a natural Jewish learning environment and to make nature a co-teacher in the classroom. You will learn through doing and then spend considerable time reflecting on what you did well and how to do it better. You will be continuously challenged to discover for yourself the value of Judaism in your life and how to share your discoveries with others. Fellows will spend 40 hours a week working in one of our organic gardens or other educational facilities and leading groups of visitors in learning experiences as well as taking time to reflect on the work that is being done, experiences that are being gained and placing it all in a Jewish context.
