Our Calling and Our Vision

Calling (Mission):

Our calling is to rewild Judaism by connecting Jews to the sacredness of the land, their ancestral practices, and the divine feminine.



Our vision is to see a world in which we all treat the earth and her abundance as sacred. We step into our role of stewarding the land and protecting it from forces aiming to harm it. We also yearn to provide safe spaces to learn both the fundamental tools of farming and our connection to the land as Jews living in a diasporic land.


Who We Are

Rakia Sky

“Down Telegraph Road – where the Rouge River runs through Ridge Road in the Riverdale neigh- borhood – is Kibbutz Detropia. On 1.5 densely wooded acres, it’s the home base for a growing Jewish nonprofit conceived by co-founder/ executive director Sky Brown, shown here with son Avi, 3. Sky has an undergraduate degree in criminology and forensic science from South Uni- versity and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. She is also a reli- gious school teacher at Congregation Shir Tik- vah and teaches psychology and political sci- ence at Wayne County Community College Dis- trict. As former program coordinator of gardens and food for Hazon Detroit, she helped set up many gardens for local synagogues and de-signed the Sensory Garden at Tamarack Camps Farber Farm. She’s a doula, urban farmer, “weaver of ritual and keeper of sacred space,” and soon to be ordained through the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute.”



Alison is the Kibbutz’s tech maven. Their connection with the land is nascent but ever deepening.
