Registration will open in October for JOFEE Network Gathering 2021. Stay tuned for more information.
The JOFEE (Jewish Outdoor, Food, Farming & Environmental Education) Network Gathering is a vibrant annual convening of Jewish professionals and community members that (re)connects us with Jewish earth-based traditions: story, song, ritual, learning, and celebration.
The gathering is more than a professional development conference and it is more than a Shabbaton; it is the place for deep learning, collaboration, spiritual engagement, and discussion.
This year, in addition to exploring earth-based Judaism, we’ll also gather around key themes including shmita and sabbatical culture, climate change, inclusive culture-building, and the ways JOFEE intersects with power, privilege, and identity. In small groups, we’ll explore and shape the ways in which culture, community, and content weave together to define the JOFEE space and our collective future.
