“Sometimes you need to encounter a stranger to discover your own tradition.”

Shebet Haaretz’s mission is to bring to life a comprehensive Jewish practice that is rooted in a deep understanding and connection to the Earth, the Jewish cyclical-calendar, and the ancient wisdom of the Torah. Through mirror-encounters with indigenous peoples and cultures around the world, our transformative expeditions teach you how to look at the world with the eyes of our ancestors, discover your place within the Jewish tradition, and become more connected to yourself, and your unique purpose.

who we are?

We are a living global community; alive in movement, in learning, in exploration, in growth. We walk in the wilderness as our ancestors did, creating a global community that is deeply rooted in the ancestral wisdom and ethics of the Torah, which informs our encounters with the jungles, mountains, deserts, and vast plains of the world.
We seek to re-discover the ancient ways of our people, the Mitzvot, the ancient Jewish spiritual-technologies which teach us how to connect more deeply to ourselves, the world, and all the beings and peoples of the Earth. We are a community who believes that we are the descendants of a tradition of mystics and sages that guide us and call upon us to renew our responsibility as Guardians of the Planet.We are a community that feels a deep connection to the Land of Israel, a beloved place of consciousness; our people’s sacred center; the soil of our oldest memories. With the voice of the Land whispering her teachings in our ears, we commit ourselves to a life of building bridges of Tikkun Olam; of mending the rifts that divide us, the relationship between humans and our planet.
