Mosaic is great way to meat jewish outdoor ethusists across the nation and close at home. many good volunteer people involved.
Mosaic has been a part of my world for 10+ years. I've made new friends, met my husband, traveled, learned new skills and simply had a blast.
I have been a member of Mosaic for many years now. It has been a great experience, In fact I met my wife at one of the Labor Day weekend events. I have always had a great time going to these events and would highly advise anyone that is looking for a great social experience to be involved with this organization. It is the only organization that I know that connects like-minded individuals with similiar backgrounds to connect at unique destinations.
If it wasn't for Mosaic I would not have experienced the outdoors in the wild and up close. I am no longer afraid of snakes! I don't think I would have ever gone camping. Sometimes it is hard to move to a new place and meet people. Mosaic is a place where strangers become welcome faces each time we get together. Probably my best experiences in Florida have been with this group. They plan great trips. They also get together as well during the week.
My experience with Mosaic has been a very good one. Many of the activities both for the local NY Chapter and National oriented events have been both enjoyable and beneficial. I feel much satisfaction in contributing to many of the clubs successes based on planning activities and marketing the organizaton thru meetup. I have met many friends and had several quality dates thru my involvement in the organization.
I am a member and past Board Member in the South Florida region. I held the position as Secretary on the Board for 2 years. Trips and activities enabled me to experience the outdoors in ways I would have never ever thought possible. From white water rafing trips, canoe and kayak trips, sailing, including activities like saving sea turtles and experienced not only outdoors, but indoors as well. I met incredible friends and retained amazing friendships.
Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America Inc have made a difference in my life. It has allowed me to connect to my culture in a way that other secular organizations don't. It also helped me in a transition period when I moved from Chicago to New York by allowing me to meet nationwide friends. The programming is unique and has enriched my life.
My son (11) his best friend (11) his best friend's father and I went on the camping trip to north of orlando this past weekend and we had a fantastic time. Accomodations, helpful members, friendliness, food, spirituality, entertainment, park, were all fantastic. You are missing out if you are not a part of Mosaic. Friendship plus value = unlimited returns. Stephen Lippy firstname.lastname@example.org
Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America is a rare find - an all volunteer-run international organization dedicated to fostering a greater appreciation of the outdoors and building outdoor and conservation skills among the Jewish community. For more than a decade I have been involved in leading trips, running my state-wide club and helping to plan international excursions that bring together a great group of people -- all of whom share interests in the natural world and to building a vibrant Jewish community of outdoor enthusiasts.
I am the activities director for the New York club. I have been active the last few years. I went on the trip to Yellowstone and it was one of the best trips that I had in my life. I also have found that I have made some very good friends through the organization. I enjoy going to the National event that is held each Labor Day weekend. This is a great group for people who enjoy the outdoors and want to meet other like minded people. Their are few other groups that serve this purpose, especially in the Jewish contexts.
