Join us for Shomrei Ha’Aretz

A program for Israeli and Hebrew-speaking Families that meets once a month on the beautiful Pearlstone Campus!

This Program is led by our amazing Israeli Shlicha (emissary) Hili Harell.

In “Shomrei Ha’aretz” we will experience the magic of nature in various ways!  We will learn about survival skills and edible plants, play games, wander in the woods, build fires, find new ways to use our senses, and more. We will discover how all of these activities relate to Jewish and Israeli tradition.

The program includes eight 3-hour classes from 1-4 pm, with each class consisting of a main theme.  The activities are recommended from age 4+ but all family members are invited!

Class dates:

11/21/21, 12/5/21 (we will start at 2:00 pm and you are more than welcome to stay afterwards for a Pearlsone Hanukkah bonfire!) 12/19/21, 1/2/22, 1/16/22, 1/30/22, 2/13/22, 2/27/22


Full season (all 8 classes): 20$ per family

Single class: 30$ per family

Single person: 10$

Can’t wait to meet you and experience the magic of nature together.
