What we're about

The Jewish Outdoors Club (JOC) is a 501c(7) non-profit organization that exists to bring Jews together for fun and adventure in the great outdoors. Over the past 19 years, we have gathered for outdoor activities ranging from chilled out social events to daring and adventurous excursions. The JOC is composed of Jews of all backgrounds, primarily modern orthodox, with an age range of 21-45. All events are Kosher and Shomer Shabbat. Events are publicized through an email list, now numbering 3,000 people, as well as through this meetup forum. Since its inception, the club has cultivated a culture that is warm and welcoming.

Come experience the outdoors, nature, adventure, and friendship with us!
