Jungle Treks, Chabad Style

( A Chabad emissary in Bolivia, Rabbi Yotam Klein, has begun offering Israeli backpackers in Bolivia the opportunity to participate in a jungle trek while learning about Judaism. Participants practice their survival skills while studying Torah and Hassidic philosophy.

Rabbi Klein, a former kibbutz member, said he came to Bolivia after his IDF service and later became involved in Chabad outreach. The idea of mixing wilderness treks and Torah study was inspired by a colleague in India, he said.
