The Book

 Our public lands are a vast treasure for backpackers, and for a variety of reasons, observant Jews do not take to the “long trail.” This guide will help the observant Jew approach wilderness backpacking and thru-hiking.

Does your sleeping bag have to be checked for shatnez? How do you keep kosher on a one-burner stove? Can I use a lake as a mikveh? Are there corollaries to the Leave No Trace Ethic in Jewish Law?

Whether you’re an observant or secular Jew, this guide can help you make your way to the wild.
