Join our monthly hiking group this summer to spend time outside with your fellow Jewish community while exploring the endless hiking trails our area has to offer. We will spend the morning sharing a nosh, exploring a moderately easy local trail, and getting to know our fellow hikers on the journey. Spending our Friday mornings in nature is a wonderful way to move from the doing of the week to the beingness of Shabbat.

*You are welcome to come for coffee and bagels and skip the hike. All picnic areas are wheelchair accessible and have a bathroom.
