Jewish Intentional Communities Conference:
Moving from an experience in life to a life experience


Dec 1, 2016 – Dec 4, 2016
Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Falls Village, CT

How do your experiences, plans, and dreams fit into the world of Jewish intentional community?

The conference will begin by exploring the growing enthusiasm in the Jewish world about formative “experiences in life”such as temporary intentional communities – fellowships, gap-year programs, and residential activist immersions. We will then explore how the lessons we are learning from these temporary communities can lead to long-term “life experiences.”

The best practices, tools, and perspectives which emerge from these explorations will culminate in a participatory full-conference workshop to map the ecosystem of intentional community models – opening real possibilities of a diverse spectrum of Jewish intentional communities where we can put down roots and raise up families.

Participation includes the full range of programming and workshops – three open Shabbat service options (Orthodox, Traditional Egalitarian, and Renewal), JOFEE activities, yoga classes, and Camp Teva for kids ages 5-12 – as well as Farm-to-Table Kosher feasts and a number of room options. Need-based financial aid available.
