Kosherica now offers TREKS!!

This is it.

The once-in-a-lifetime, mother-of-all treks. To stand at Uhuru peak, 19,340 feet high, watching the sun rise above the African continent, is an extraordinary experience of beauty, wonder, and gratitude. The trek is very strenuous, and takes us about as high as one can go on any mountain without technical climbing. As we ascend through five different climatic zones (equatorial forest, heath, moraine, alpine desert, glacial) the main challenge is the altitude. That's why we proceed slowly, schedule rest days for acclimatization, take Diamox (an altitude sickness prophylactic), drink a lot and eat heartily. It's also why we've chosen to take a more scenic, much less traveled, longer route up the mountain. We believe this route is ultimately safer, and ensures a much higher summit success rate.

Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin

A distinguished communal Rabbi for over 35 years, Rabbi Riskin continues to change the face of modern Orthodox Jewry in Israel and the Diaspora. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Rabbi Riskin graduated valedictorian, summa cum laude from Yeshiva University in 1960, where he majored in Greek, Latin and English literatures. He received his Smicha (rabbinical ordination) from the eminent Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik. Rabbi Riskin holds a Master's Degree in Jewish History and was awarded his PhD from New York University's department of Near Eastern Languages and Literature.

As a young rabbinical graduate, Rabbi Riskin became the founding rabbi of the Lincoln Square Synagogue in Manhattan, internationally renowned for its outreach to the entire Jewish community, as well as for its educational and social action programs. He became a major spokesperson for Modern Orthodoxy by pioneering the first women's Advanced Talmud Study program (Kollelet) and the first synagogue service conducted for women by women in the early 70's.
