Zelig Golden

www.wildernesstorah.org

Zelig is a founding co-director of Wilderness Torah, which awakens and celebrates the earth-based traditions of Judaism. A Maggid (itinerant Jewish teacher), wilderness guide, youth mentor, and environmental attorney, Zelig brings 15 years of visionary leadership to the Jewish environmental movement. To help reweave the fabric of multi-generational community and reconnect Judaism to its indigenous roots, Zelig develops and guides Wilderness Torah’s land-based pilgrimage festivals, nature-based rites of passage, and nature-based Jewish spirituality. Zelig derives much inspiration from his years as a Colorado Outward Bound instructor, an Alaskan back country park ranger and a life-long explorer of wild places. Until recently, he worked as an environmental attorney for the Center for Food Safety to protect our food and farms. Zelig holds a J.D. from Berkeley Law, a B.S. in ecology from the University of Washington, and was ordained as a Maggid by Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi, the father of the Jewish renewal movement.
