Hike with the Rabbi

Join Rabbi Jamie for a Hike

Adults are invited to Rabbi Jamie for a hike.  This will be a casual hike, an opportunity to chat and get to know each other or catch up.

This is a great opportunity to experience one of the core philosophies of Adventure Judaism and Adventure Rabbi, the idea that being outdoors with others builds deeper relationships. We believe that shared experiences in nature, engage us in a manner that fosters deep and lasting friendships, inner contentment and peace. Come check it out!

Hikes leave from 2 places:

  1.  Shanahan Ridge, one of Boulder’s most scenic trails. Meet at the corner of Lafayette Dr. and Lehigh St.
  2. Bear Creek Elementary School. Meet inside the building, in the “fishbowl,” or better yet, join us for Adventure Rabbi Kids 15-minute song session led by Rabbi Jamie, 15-minutes before our hike. 2500 Table Mesa Dr. Boulder Co 80305

Free for members, non-members $10. No dogs, please. No need to RSVP.

We leave on time and this sometimes throws people. If we know you are coming we will wait 5 minutes, but otherwise, we leave at the appointed time

Inclement Weather:

Our rain policy is to wear raingear! We hike rain, snow,  or shine. That said, if the weather is really uncomfortable, we might shorten the hike and go get hot coffee.


Unnecessary, but it’s always nice to know. You can use the contact form below to let us know you will be there.
