Yesod (Hebrew for “foundation”) is a year-long program that grounds youth in their Jewish heritage through a group experience that is rooted in the natural world. With a strong focus on deep nature-connection, joyful Jewish ritual, and interdependent resilience, our mentors support and guide our B’nei Mitzvahs in their first steps on the path of adulthood. The Yesod program includes Yamim (Days) B’Naiture (Sundays), Evenings B’Yachad (Together) (Wednesdays), and Shabbat B'Naiture (culminating Shabbaton)
