Wanna go for a Walk with Sheila?

It's never too late to start exercising and what better way than with a group friends. You can catch up on their lives, gossip a little and enjoy the fresh Ojai morning air. We do a different walk every week...usually about 3 miles or 7-8,000 steps, almost a whole day's quota. Hope to see you at 8am on the west side of the Ojai Valley Museum courtyard on Thursday mornings, rain or shine.
A message from our Membership Committee tells you how you can help expand our Jewish presence in the greater Ojai Community. Your invitation can be found by clicking here....
