About our community


About Our Community: The Adventure Rabbi Program (AR) is a new type of Jewish congregation, striving to make Judaism relevant, meaningful, and accessible for the 21st century. Our community centers around our retreat program. People of all ages, singles, couples, and families, come from all over the country (but especially Colorado) for our Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Passover retreats to learn, celebrate and create a new kind of Jewish community.

In between retreats, Rabbi Jamie Korngold leads AR events in Boulder Colorado and Rabbi Evon Yakar leads AR events in South Lake Tahoe, California. We are thrilled to have expanded so that we now have two bases for our alternative approach to Judaism, one in Boulder Colorado and the other in South Lake Tahoe California. We gather for Shabbat, holidays, hikes, skiing, and learning.

Rabbi Jamie Korngold is a best-selling author (more than 400,000 books sold) and travels to Jewish communities around the country teaching at congregations, colleges, camps, and JCCs. She trains clergy and counselors in her innovative approach to Judaism combining nature and the ancient wisdom of Jewish tradition.

We are especially proud of our innovative Bar and Bat Mitzvah programs. Our students hail from all over the world and study with us by Skype. Our Colorado based students are able to participate in a monthly Adventure Class where they climb peaks and snowshoe alongside their Hebrew studies. From Destination Bar & Bat Mitzvah ceremonies to Bar/Bat Yisrael ceremonies, which have no Hebrew, we have something for almost every Bar / Bat Mitzvah candidate.

In general, we are a "pay as you go" community, but we do rely heavily on membership (inexpensive!) donations and grants in order to sustain our community. Read more at the Adventure Rabbi blog.
