  • Israel ‘22 - Ten Commandments
  1. Be prepared for very strenuous exercise, including climbing in difficult terrain, at high temperatures, in direct sun, for prolonged periods.

  2. Be prepared and able to walk ten flights of stairs without stopping. Walk 2-4 miles a day in preparation. We will hike 4-6 miles a day. You will have the option of taking some other hikes if you are adventurously inclined.

  3. Pay attention to controlling body temperature with appropriate clothing and fluid.

  4. Know your limitations and act accordingly. If you have a history of heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, or have experienced chest discomfort, or shortness of breath with exercise – consult a physician before registering for the trip.

  5. If you take medications regularly, (especially insulin) consult your physician about any changes that may be required while in Israel. Make sure you take enough for the trip.

  6. Wear a hat that provides shade for your face and neck. Bring sunscreen, especially if you burn easily.

  7. Wear hiking boots or trail shoes with good traction and support. There will be times when your feet will get wet, and good hiking socks will help prevent foot injury.

  8. Always carry water and drink before beginning each hike. Drink small amounts at regular intervals before you get thirsty.

  9. Eat salty foods and supplement diet with salt if necessary.

  10. If you have any medical problems or injuries while on the trip discuss them with the leader who is traveling with you as soon as possible. Many problems like blisters, and infections are treated easily if seen early.
