Currently Accepting Applications for Spring, Summer, and Fall 2019 cohorts! We accept applications on a rolling basis. Ask us why Adamah should be on your bucket list! Job Description Come spend a few months on a small New England farm nestled in the Connecticut Berkshires, at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center. We farm on 10 acres of fields, orchards, and pasture. In addition to our farm being certified Organic, we use sustainable practices such as crop rotation, cover cropping, composting, drip irrigation, creating habitat for pollinators, and growing a diverse mix of perennials and annuals. In addition to growing fresh veggies all season long, we are busy preserving the harvest by making delicious value added products- pickles, jams, and more.
5 Things that should not stop you from applying to Adamah:
- You cannot afford it (no one is turned away for lack of funds)
- You don't know how to farm (we will teach you)
- You are too Jewish or not Jewish enough (we are masters of pluralism)
- You don't like pickles (we make sauerkraut too!)
- It's not in your 5-year plan (ask our alumni why it should be)

What our alumni are saying:
“Adamah is the happiest and most purposeful I have ever felt in my life.” -Noah, 2016
“So many worlds have opened up for me here, and I don’t want to close them when I leave.” -Aidelle, 2018
"Adamah changed my life, made me a better, more well-rounded person, helped me build deep, meaningful connections, helped me think about my role and responsibility in this world, helped me connect to my Judaism in a powerful, beautiful way, taught me way more than I could have imagined learning in two months anywhere and any time in my life." -Liana, 2018
"Adamah has shown me what it means to work in a team of people who actually believe in the work they are doing and are dedicated to it. Being a part of that type of team was a unique, inspiring, and wonderful feeling. Adding in the emotional support and kindness of the staff made this group feel almost magical. I was so moved to have the space and time and security to engage with spiritual questions and challenging thoughts and feelings, to explore my Jewish identity. The farm work and connection to the land only deepened that experience." How to apply Please click here to sign in and view application details.
