The Climb Begins

They did it. You can too!
Without a doubt, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is a life-changing experience for pretty much everyone who makes the journey.
50 individuals fulfilled a dream and took this journey on behalf of a greater cause, raising funds for Shalva’s children with disabilities and their families. These climbers from Israel, the UK, the USA, Canada, France and Switzerland set off to spend ten days surrounded by some of the world’s most beautiful scenery on their way to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro located in Tanzania. Kilimanjaro is a natural wonder and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. Our participants hiked through 5 eco-systems, including rainforest, desert and arctic terrain, all to benefit Shalva’s children with disabilities and their families.
Our diverse group of climbers spent a magical Shabbat at the Barranco Wall, located at 3,900m above the clouds. All participants elected to observe Shabbat as part of the global Shabbat project and unanimously agreed that it was the most wonderful Shabbat experience of their lives, complete with an eruv, special Shabbat meals and services led by group members, Chazan Anton Ereira and Rabbi Ari Shainfield, from the UK.
The trek was hailed a huge success and by popular demand we have decided to offer it again so that others can share this amazing experience.
There’s something about Mt. Kilimanjaro that attracts out of the ordinary climbers. And YOU to can embark on this journey to awesomeness.
