Sixth Annual Beit Midrash Retreat

Pearlstone Center is holding its 6th annual Beit Midrash Retreat, Friday, March 7th-Sunday March 9th. The conference brings together an intergenerational, pluralistic community, from across the country, who delves into rich Jewish learning on environmental themes.  Jonathan Billig, a past participant shared, “The Pearlstone Beit Midrash was a living circle. It was a chance to engage with other educators and environmentally motivated Jews around a dynamic and relevant study of Jewish texts. I feel enriched by the knowledge I gained and excited by the connections I made. I am motivated by the experience to go further and deeper as a Jew and as an educator.”

This year the theme of the Shabbaton retreat is Breishit: A Journey Through Creation and will bring together close to 150 Jewish farmers, rabbis, educators, learners and scholars for an in-depth exploration of creation, one day at a time, using traditional texts to uncover contemporary issues and values.   Sessions include “Glory in Our Creation: Valuing Biodiversity,”  “A Guided Tour of the Seven Heavens,” “Gender in the Genesis Narrative,” and “The Torah’s Deep Ecology: Shaping our Way to a Sustainable Future.”  The retreat also includes comprehensive thematic programming for kids age 12 and under.

Teachers this year will include faculty from the following partner organizations:  The Jewish Theological Seminary, Drisha Institute, Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, Mechon Hadar, Pardes, Hebrew College and others.
