Dan Irving

Teacher, Jewish Ecology and Sustainability, STEM, Library

I have worked in outdoor Jewish education for over 25 years. I have a background in music and acting. My degree is in anthropology. I am passionate about facilitating children exploring new interests, by way of new experiences, as the pathway to lasting learning. I believe that Judaism is full of wisdom about our relationship with the natural world. This wisdom may have seemed theoretical or esoteric to think about even in the recent past. Now, the questions raised are truly existential. I see my role as to empower students to see themselves as having been given the gift of life, the purpose of which is to make the world better than when we arrived.
