Exciting Programs for Children and Teens
Ruach Ha’Aretz sets the standard for fabulously fun and creative programs for children.
The Ruach Kids program serves a central role in the larger Ruach Ha’Aretz Village, inspiring a culture of inter-generational connection that supports the aliveness of an intact culture where everything and everyone is interdependent as we all embrace Reb Zalman’s vision and seek to bring peace to our hearts, our families and the world by getting it together … together!
Our Ruach Kids program is beginning to take shape – check back here for more information in the next few weeks.
Ruach Ha’Aretz may also provide childcare for pre-school age children. Please contact us if you’re planning to bring a child under 5 years of age.
Older teens may choose to attend any of the adult classes and workshops or serve as staff in the Ruach Kids program. If your teen would like to assist with Ruach Kids, please indicate on the registration form, and one of the program directors will contact her/him for an interview.
We are delighted to welcome Sara Klugman, our Ruach Kids Director to the Ruach Ha’Aretz Family
Sara Klugman is a dancer, poet, educator, and youth worker currently living in Jerusalem.
Sara graduated from Carleton College with a degree in Religion. After graduating, she spent three years in New York City, working in public education, counseling, and arts access related-work with high school students. For the past year and a half, Sara has been living in Jerusalem. She spent 6 months studying on the Conflict Resolution track at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, focusing on classic Jewish texts and modern Hebrew. She also spent 6 months studying and performing full-time with the Vertigo Modern Dance Company —a world-renowned modern dance company based in an eco-village outside of Jerusalem. Sara is currently studying part-time at the conservative Yeshiva and working closely with Hamiffal—a Jerusalem based art collective —to create arts programming and residencies aimed at bringing together Palestinian and Jewish communities in East and West Jerusalem.
Sara is excited to explore this year’s theme, “The Call of the Earth to Love and Truth” with young people. As someone who believes deeply in integrating spiritual and artistic practice, Sara looks forward facilitating how young people can explore, claim, and find Torah through broad and creative valences.
