What is JOA?

Jewish Outdoorsmen of America is an LA based organization committed to taking jews outdoors and building strong Jewish men.

We seek the physical challenges and believe in the healing powers of nature.

Our adventures are organized and led in a Jewish spirit. All food is kosher. We lead morning (Shaharit), afternoon (Mincha) and evening (Maariv) prayers and observe Shabbat.

מַה טֹּבוּ אֹהָלֶיךָ, יַעֲקֹב; מִשְׁכְּנֹתֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל.

How lovely are your tents, O Jacob; your encampments, O Israel!

How do I know I am fit
for JOA adventures?

Many of our multi day adventures require a certain level of physical fitness

Our trips require a certain level of physical and outdoor fitness. Each adventure is rated. Use our rating to know whether this adventure is for you. If you are not sure and live in the LA area, you may sign up to our Mt Baldy day hike. If you can get to the summit of Mt Baldy, you can participate to any of our adventures. Ultimately, we will use our discretion to determine who is ready.

We organize backpacking trips of various levels across the American West, mainly the Sierra.

We seek the physical challenge and believe in the healing powers of nature.
