Learning without Borders

With so much to learn, why restrict yourself to a local classroom setting? There are many rich Jewish learning resources from rabbis, scholars and teachers throughout the country and around the world, all available online.

Below are websites offering Jewish learning opportunities and content.

At Coastal Roots Farm, we are inspired by ancient Jewish traditions that connect people to community, food, the land, and social justice. Jewish community farms use farming, gardening, and food as a way to teach about Jewish tradition and heritage, build Jewish identity and community, and make the world a more just and sustainable place. Located in Encinitas.


Judaism Unbound, a project of the Institute for the Next Jewish Future, is a project that catalyzes and supports grassroots efforts by “disaffected but hopeful” American Jews to re-imagine and re-design Jewish life in America for the 21st Century. Judaism Unbound produces a once-a-week podcast, runs an active facebook page, and features blog posts by fellows of the Institute for the Next Jewish Future and guests.
