What better way to rejoice in God's creation than by celebrating Shabbat in the great out of doors? Temple Emanu-El's Wandering Jews Hiking Club experiences the magnificence of the Sonoran desert and the beauty of Shabbat by combining a Shabbat hike with either a Shabbat morning or a Havdallah service at least once each month.


*Saturday, January 10, 2015:

Hikers will meet at the east end of the Sabino Canyon parking lot at 8:00 am.

Be sure to bring a hat, water, picnic lunch or snacks and good walking shoes or boots. We will hike approximately 8 miles round trip.

Directions: East on Speedway to Wilmot road. Left (north) on Wilmot. Wilmot becomes Tanque Verde at Pima Road Intersection. Continue on Tanque Verde to Sabino Canyon Road. Turn left and follow the signs to Sabino Canyon visitor center parking lot. There is a charge for parking of $5 per vehicle.


*Saturday, May 9, 2015:

We'll meet at 8:00 am at the end of Speedway at the Bridal Wreath Falls trailhead -- it's in Saguaro National Park East, just south of the entrance to the Tanque Verde guest ranch; you can also park on the side of the road there. Look for the Temple Emanu-El t-shirts... we'll hike to Bridal Wreath Falls, hold Shabbat morning services there, read our mini-hike Torah, and enjoy grape juice kiddush and challah. Wear hiking boots or shoes, bring water, dress in layers, have sunscreen-- all the usual stuff. It's a moderate hike, uphill for quite a while at the start, then rolling hills and a bit of picking your way into the falls area.
