All over the country Jews are reconnecting with the land, and some would say the Jewish farming movement is stronger than ever. Wendy Rhein, who bought a 10-acre farm she named Chutzpah Hollow in North Carolina and moved there with her sons in 2021, is one of them. Wendy shares why and how she created a thriving and growing Jewish farm and Adrienne Krone, who has studied Jewish American farms, discusses the movement today and the history of Jewish farming. In conversation with Moment digital editor Noah Phillips, an alum of Urban Adamah, a Jewish farm community in Berkeley, CA.
