Funding the Kibbutz

$1,115 of $500,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 14 months
We are aiming to raise money to purchase a 23 acre organic farm and use it as a female identified/non-binary Farm School called Bat Chavah.  Participants will live in community and learn about the ancient agricultural and land based roots of Judaism.   The farm will also host retreats and larger multi-day jewish holiday events.  

The Bat Chavah farm will host an 9 month farm school Chevra for female identified and non-binary Jews. This program will consist of learning to live in community while learning farming skills, animal husbandry, soap making, land stewardship, cooking and tending sacred space. Each day will also include Jewish education, davening, and time for community building within the Chevra and engaging with the larger (local) community as a whole. 

We will host (at least) two large festivals on the farm yearly, such as Shavuot and Sukkot Shabbatons in order to engage the wider Jewish community with the land and our vision. 

Kibbutz Detropia will continue to host bi-weekly Shabbat dinners, to work with Repair the World Fellows, and to celebrate holidays as a community. The Kibbutz is serving an integral purpose in being accessible to Metro Detroit Jews who need a place to connect in a more intimate and ecotheological way than traditional Synagogues offer.  We will also continue to host and lead workshops and participate in at least two large  (Jewish) community wide events per year.
