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!


The Associated Jewish Outdoorsmen’s Non-Definitive List of Jewish Trees

  • Citron (its etrog is used during Sukkot)
  • Cypress (traditionally planted at the birth of a girl; may be the “gopher wood” tree used to build Noah’s ark)

  • Elder (as in respect yours…)
  • Fig (one of the Seven Species)
  • Juniper (for the ancient Jewniper, obviously)
