The JFN Conference

Jewish Farmer Network’s Annual Conference, “Cultivating Culture”, uplifts a diverse and dynamic group of Jewish farmers, scholars and food systems professionals and offers opportunities for community connection and learning at the intersection of Judaism and Agriculture. Our participants are a vibrant collection of ranchers, urban farmers, community gardeners, organic field hands, and everything in between. Our conference offers a balanced schedule that highlights the many facets of Jewish agricultural wisdom. Topics include ancestral livestock ethics, Jewish food justice, the Torah of trees, and farm economics. Our debut conference in 2020 sold out with 163 participants and our subsequent virtual conferences each hosted over 300 attendees from 37 states and 5 different countries.

Join us for Shabbat Dinner at an agriculture conference near you

JFN is excited to bring Shabbat dinner to regional agriculture conferences across the US.

Join us engage in rituals new and old, while exploring the ways our tradition elevates food and builds community. The Sabbath is an ancestral blueprint for sacred cycles of work and rest that are directly tied to the work of a farmer. (No Shabbat experience necessary)
