In these unprecedented times, we are grateful to offer Pearlstone’s Shavuot Sojourn: A Jewish Agricultural Journey, an entire week dedicated to Jewish Agriculture and Earth-based Jewish Wisdom.

For the past six years, Shavuot at Pearlstone has provided a retreat filled with inspiring Jewish learning, spirited singing, festive farm-to-table meals, and a pluralistic community building experience.  Participants enjoy multiple learning tracks about Judaism and sustainability, keynotes from guest scholars, delicious, healthy food, music, and activities for people of all ages.  This multigenerational gathering of participants, both local and distant, is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience deep Torah learning and collective communal engagement.

In these unprecedented times, we are thrilled to offer a piece of Shavuot at Pearlstone to you in your homes. We will keep you in our hearts and minds and hope that we will be able to be together in community soon.

None of this would be possible without The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore. Pearlstone, a proud agency of The Associated, is mobilized to respond in times of crisis thanks to the The Associated’s Annual Campaign. Our Associated network needs your support to meet the urgent needs in our community due to the current COVID-19 crisis. Please give generously here.
