“Words truly cannot express how grateful I am for the Fellowship. With exquisite leadership, support, and friendship, I feel like I am growing into the human being I want to be.”
— 2021 Fellow
The Urban Adamah Fellowship is a four-month residential program for adults ages 21 – 30 that integrates urban organic farming, Jewish learning, and communal living. The fellowship also weaves in themes of mindfulness and food justice. Fellows live, learn, farm, cook, celebrate Shabbat, and build community together. We accept up to 14 individuals per fellowship season.

- Fill out the application!
The Fellowship fee is on a sliding scale from $900 – $4,635 with opportunities for scholarships.
What will we explore?
Plant propagation; harvesting; cultivating healthy soil; vermicomposting; pest management; aquaponics; tending bees, goats, and chickens; tool use and care; cheese making; herbal medicine and so much more! You will leave with the skills and confidence to create and manage your own garden.
Intentional Community & Service
Building intentional community around shared visions of earth-connection and connected Jewish practice; unpacking our social identities and exploring the intersections of power and privilege within those identities, resourcing ourselves to be the allies and leaders we need in this time of great turning; showing up in direct service each week at our farm stand and at internships with food justice partners; exploring how to step into your full power and be a force for love in the world.
Jewish Living & Learning
How Jewish tradition and Jewish learning can add depth, meaning, and joy to daily life; how 2,000 year old rituals, texts, and values remain meaningful and relevant; how to develop a Jewish spiritual practice that is infused with mindfulness and earth-connection; how to find your personal connection to Jewish practice; how to lead Jewish ritual and how to build connected Jewish community.
You do not need to have specific prior experience in farming, Jewish learning and practice, or community living. We seek fellowship candidates who are passionate about engaging whole-heartedly in the internal (mind, heart, and body) and external (farming is physical) work of this experience. Those who thrive in fellowship living arrive ready to go deep, be vulnerable, contribute to the community, and ask sometimes difficult questions about who and how they want to be in the world.
