"Going Forth"- Teva's
Jewish Wilderness Adventure
Teens Ages 13 to 15
August 10 – 16, 2009 at the
Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center
In Joy shall you go out, and in peace shall you be led.
The mountains shall burst before you into song,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Inspired by yitziat mitzraim—the Exodus from Egypt—yitziah means “going out” and is an invitation to an adventure that is both physical and spiritual.
Spend a week hiking the Appalachian trail and paddling the scenic Housatonic River, carrying by backpack everything you need for the round-trip journey.
Learn wilderness and survival skills, prepare your own meals, live in tents and share responsibility for all aspects of outdoor communal living.
This program is for teens ages 13-15 and is appropriate for advanced and beginner hikers who can carry weight on their backs.
The group will be guided by master educators from the Teva Learning Center.
Space is limited, so early registration is recommended. Register online at www.isabellafreedman.org/yitziah or call (800) 398-2630 ext 4.
