If you take Jewish groups on outdoor hikes, this tiny, easy to use book is a must-have for your backpack. Trail activities, from preparaing to hike through group debriefing, make clear connections with the Bible and spiritual insights. Don't head for the trail without it.

Format: Paperback
This small but powerful book will fit right in your backpack. It contains enough program ideas for a day trip or a month long adventure. It's great for a variety of ages and knowledge levels. I keep multiple copies on my shelf to give out to guides leading Adventure Rabbi trips.
