Highlights of this unique and all-inclusive vacation in the beautiful Berkshires include:
  • All the summer-fun amenities of our retreat center – swimming, hiking, boating, berry-picking, and freshly-prepared farm-to-table meals.
  • Outdoor food festival experience where chefs will be stationed and cooking up all kinds of delicious edibles – everything from smoked meats to fresh grilled veggies and pitas made on an open fire.
  • Celebrate a pluralistic Shabbat (Renewal, Traditional Egalitarian, and Orthodox prayer services) – a full day of learning sessions, a beautiful havdalah ceremony and an all-out dance party under the stars with DJ M Dot.
  • Keynote Panel – What role does Judaism play in creating a more just, delicious, nutritious, and culturally rooted food movement?
Panelists include:
  • Mitchell Davis – VP of the James Beard Foundation: Jewish Food Traditions
  • Yael Lehmann – Executive Director of The Food Trust: Health and Nutrition
  • Liz Vaknin – Founder of Our Name is Farm: Cooking Demonstrations
Learning with fantastic presenters:
  • Liz Rueven – Kosher Like Me: Preparing a Seasonal and Sustainable Rosh Hashanah Menu
  • Rahel Musleah – A Taste of India's Jewish Masala
  • Adrienne Krone – Jewish Community Farming in the Context of the Urban Food Justice Movement
  • Mitchell Davis – Jewish Spice Mix and Other Manifestations of Culinary Judaism

  • Nancy Wolfson-Moche – Enzymes, Probiotics, and Prebiotics: Cooking for Digestive Health

And the Kids' Food Conference is an opportunity for children ages 5-12 to learn cooking skills, nutrition, food justice, and farming in an engaging, age-appropriate setting. Come plant the seeds to cultivate a new foodie generation. We will literally plant seeds, harvest vegetables from the Adamah farm, create amazing recipes, and enjoy the abundance. Other activities include cob oven baking, DIY ice cream, wild plant walks, exciting food science experiments, and more!

We are seeking a diverse group of Jewish Southerners of all ages and religious backgrounds who want to make Jewish food and environmental programming a vibrant part of the Southern Jewish community.
