GUIDE FOR THE PERPLEXED
Schlep: Yiddish, to pull, drag, or lag behind.

With this design we salute you Jewish outdoorsy types. Above an idyllic campsite is the phrase “How beautiful are your tents and campfires,” a reference to a phrase in the book of Numbers, “How beautiful are your tents, O Jacob.” Around the logo repeats the phrase, “Schlep, S’mores, Sleep, Repeat.” Isn’t that the essence of camping?

Jewish Outdoorswomen, we haven’t forgotten you!
