J Adventure: Hiking at Rocky Ridge Park

May 26 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free!

Join us for our May J Adventure Hike at Rocky Ridge Park. We will be joining the Jewish Life and Culture Department to celebrate Lag B’Omer, a fun minor Jewish Holiday. Lag B’Omer occurs on the 33rd day of the Omer, a 49-day period between Passover and Shavuot. The Omer was an ancient measurement of grain. Ancient Jewish law stated that no new grain should be sowed until the Omer was brought to the Temple as an offering. This also reminds us Jews of the journey from slavery to redemption, from when Jews were slaves in Egypt (Passover) to when they received the Torah on Mount Sinai (Shavuot). Lag B’Omer is a fun time to be outside and celebrate with friends and family, and what better way to do that than a hike at the park! You can expect around 5 miles of hiking and a few hundred feet of elevation gain, but you can easily do less or more with the amazing trail system at Rocky Ridge!

Register here so we know you’ll be joining us!
