“I truly would not be where I am today if it weren’t for my experience at Urban Adamah….”
“UA exposed me to a whole new world of food justice that has inspired every career move I have made since. It also set a new bar for what meaningful Jewish practice and community could look like, practices and values which I still carry with me to this day.”
