Shomrei HaAdamah (Guardians of the Earth) - A School-Wide Garden Program
As a 21st century Jewish Community Day School, Donna Klein Jewish Academy is dedicated to not only teach our students about Judaism, but to live it. Judaism and environmentalism are deeply interconnected. Shomrei HaAdamah (Guardians of the Earth) is an exciting school-wide program designed to engage students in both their Judaic and secular education through their experiences in the garden.
The Guardians of the Earth program promotes an avid culture of environmental stewardship and Jewish eco-active leaders on our campus. Collaboration with our dining services program helps promote healthy food choices and food waste reduction. The students plant and harvest foods that are included on our lunch menu. 

This initiative's goal is to connect the students of DKJA to their natural world, and help develop a more meaningful commitment to the Earth as it relates to Jewish Life. This truly defines tikkun olam (repairing the world).
