At Hebrew School on the Farm we take Jewish learning outdoors. Through hands-on activities, we experience how connected we are as Jews to being farmers through the Jewish calendar and our holidays. We explore Judaism’s deep connection to nature and how our ancient tenets of earth stewardship apply to how we live today. Join us on the farm to harvest food, discuss food justice, make fires and forest shelters, plant seeds, and experience natural cycles.
Note: This is a family program for PreK through 6th grade families. We will be meeting at the Pearlstone Center at 10 AM on Sunday, January 30th; please plan to travel back and forth as a family unit.
From NW DC, it takes at least 1 hour and 15 minutes to drive to Pearlstone. The program will take approximately 2 hours.
Pearlstone staff requests NO ANIMALS accompany you for this program. There are other animals on the farm and all pets must stay at home.
At Pearlstone, students in 3rd-6th grade will engage in interactive outdoor activities in the forest with Pearlstone educators. Parents will embark on an informative nature hike, and students in grades Pre-K-2 will join Machon Micah educators for music, stories, and games around a campfire.
