In rural Connecticut, two programs offer unique opportunities for Jewish environmental education. At the Teva Learning Center, elementary school children encounter the natural world as they explore the woods, learn where their food comes from, and take responsibility for waste. At Adamah, a three-month environmental leadership training program, a small community of twenty-somethings engage in organic farming, sustainable living, and contemplative spiritual practice. These future leaders of the Jewish community offer an inspiring model to the Teva students. Together they are renewing the ecological wisdom inherent in Judaism and building a genuine commitment to tikkun olam, healing the world. ("Renewal" is the first feature-length documentary series to capture the vitality of America's religious-environmental movement. Offering a profound message of hope, in eight stories, "Renewal" shows people inspired by their diverse spiritual and religious convictions, being called to re-examine what it means to be human and how we live on this planet. Stories include Evangelical, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and several interfaith grassroots initiatives – portraits of people working to become better stewards of the environment. "Renewal" provides an inspiring account of how religions today can be a powerful force for good in the world by bringing people together through a common concern for the earth.)
