A base camp within Zion National Park will be utilized for daily living activities including meals, learning, workshops and tent sleeping. A base camp allows access to supplies, transportation and other resources as a result there will be NO need to carry supplies in heavy backpacks. We will only be doing day hikes. This is NOT a traditional backpacking or back country journey. We will be spending Friday through Sunday in a very comfortable resort just outside of Zion National Park. Each day will combine Torah learning, group challenge based initiatives, day hikes and exploration. Register here Read More

BalakBalak, the king of the Moav, is in morbid fear of the Beney Yisrael. He summons a renowned sorcerer named Bil’am to curse them. First, HaShem appears to Bil’am and forbids him to go. But because Bil’am is so insistent, HaShem appears to him a second time and permits him to go. While en route, a malach (angel, messenger from HaShem) blocks the path of Bil’am's donkey. Unable to contain his frustration, Bil’am strikes the donkey each time it stops or wants to make a detour. Miraculously, the donkey speaks, asking Bil’am why he is hitting her. The malach instructs Bil’am what he is permitted to say and what he is forbidden to say regarding the Jewish People. When Bil’am arrives, King Balak makes elaborate preparations in the hope that Bil’am will succeed in the planned curse. Three times Bil’am attempts to curse, and three times a blessing issues instead. Balak, seeing that Bil’am has failed, sends him home in disgrace. The Beney Yisrael begin sinning with the Moavi women, and worshipping the Moavi idols, and are punished with a plague. One of the Jewish leaders brazenly brings a Midianite princess into his tent, in full view of Moshe and the people. Pinchas, a grandson of Aharon, grabs a spear and kills both evildoers. This halts the plague, but not before 24,000 have died.
