“The desert makes me slow down, I can’t help it. My body always must see it.” — Aviv, 11
Passover in the Desert:
Thursday, March 28 – Monday, April 1, 2013
We experienced our own Exodus, instead of simply recounting it around the dinner table. We rediscovered the essence of village life as we moved from our own experiences of slavery into freedom, using the expansive desert as our guide.
Check out photos of our gathering during five days of village living and ceremony aimed at breaking down the personal barriers that hold us back from having true freedom in our lives.

Our village in the desert embodied simplicity, connection, tribe, and transformation. We left our electronic devices at home as we made Exodus to the rugged desert wilderness, where we experienced the joy and abundance of living, eating, learning, singing, and praying together in the blooming spring desert.

Passover in the Desert is a rugged wilderness experience. Participants should be comfortable in the outdoors and committed to a shared group experience. Prior camping experience is recommended.
