Our tradition is deeply rooted in nature.   From receiving the Torah in the desert to celebrating seasonal holidays, our people have come into communal connection, personal accomplishment, and spiritual meaning through creation.

Today, our generation is confronted with disconnection, self-doubt, and lack of purpose – and alienation from our origins in nature is a central cause.

Our path toward reconnection and wholeness begins with a step back from distraction and routine in order to journey together in creation, heeding the call first heard by our forefather Avraham: Lech-Lecha!

  

This is our mission: to facilitate empowering outdoor adventures and wilderness journeys that catalyze personal development and spiritual growth, connection with the wonder of creation, meaningful interpersonal relationships, and joyful community deeply rooted in Torah and a holistic approach to Jewish life and practice.

We achieve this mission through our Adventure Camp for teens, adult expeditions for 20’s-30’s, outfitting programs for schools, camps, campus and young professional organizations, and local community programs across North America.

  

The wonder of a sunset and the calming trickle of a stream, the empowering achievement of a challenging hike, and the simple silence of the wilderness invite genuine belief in self, belonging in community, and connection to Hashem.

We are seeking your financial investment to bring our full program portfolio to fruition over the coming year and provide need-based scholarships that ensure wide accessibility.

Explore Lech-Lecha, Inc. is a certified 501(c)(3), EIN: 82-3276819.  All donations are tax deductible.

Over the past five years, we have reached hundreds of participants.  With your help, over the next five years we will reach thousands more, supporting their journeys into communal connection, personal accomplishment, and spiritual meaning through creation.

On behalf of our participants and stakeholders, thank you for joining us on the trail!

Thank you to our supporters:
