I am the Founder of Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America. I am not currently actively involved, but I am thrilled with the group of volunteers that are doing such an excellent job serving the Jewish community. Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America serves as the International organization for local Mosaic clubs across the country, and throughout the world. It offers support in growth, leadership, and other vital areas, to all local Mosaic clubs. Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America also organizes an annual International event, which I have organized many times in past years, and I did so for 2009 as well. Through events like this, Jewish people with a love for the outdoors come together from all over to meet, socialize, and share adventures. Many couples have met and gotten married as a result of meeting at Mosaic events; the number is in the hundreds! I have friends all over the country, with whom I travel, visit, and communicate. Mosaic has changed my life, and the lives of many others. I honestly feel that it is one of the most important organizations that one can support, for so many reasons. I have personally dedicated a large part of my life to Mosaic Outdoor Clubs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

so many ways, including making many lifetime friendships, and some of the coolest adventures ever!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have started the umbrella organization before starting the local, independent clubs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The circle of friends that I've met, and the down-to-earth attitude of most of its members.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Jewish, mostly singles, but lots of couples now, mostly 30's to 50's.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make an even greater impact in the Jewish community, by starting more local clubs, and encouraging more Tikkun Olam.

Ways to make it better...

my wife were on these trips with me, but I wasn't married till recently, and we have two young children.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the fact that the local clubs started before the umbrella organization. Also, attracting younger adventurers to get involved in the Jewish community.

One thing I'd also say is that...

even if you've never really experienced the outdoors, give it a try. Nature has so many qualities for everyone to enjoy.

I have been involved with my local Mosaic club for almost 18 years. From this club and the national organization Mosaic Outdoor Club of America, I have enjoyed the outdoors while learning so many new skills and meeting and makings life long friends. Being with other Jewish people who love the outdoors, keeps me in nature and lets allows me to grow spiritually. Wonderful organization!

I've been a member of the local club in Georgia since 1995 and before that the Philadelphia club. I've been attending the National Event every year since 1998. My closest friends I've met through Mosaic. Not only in Georgia but I have good friends all over. Great organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could promote itself to jewish communities all over the country (and perhaps the world). And perhaps hire a staff member to organize new clubs and chapters. to bring more jews together to enjoy the outdoors.
