A free urban walking program on public trails in the Santa Fe community.
The Santa Fe Walking Collaborative, convened by the Santa Fe Conservation Trust, wants to help you to walk more! We’ve put together 42 in-town walks on trails near Santa Fe’s parks from May through October 2018. They are free, last about an hour, and are led by interesting Santa Feans.
Want to walk with us? Visit the Vamonos sign-up page or feel free to “just show up!”

July 11 – Rabbi Neil Amswych
Rabbi Neil Amswych comes to Santa Fe following 9 years as the principal rabbi of Bournemouth Reform Synagogue in England. He studied astrophysics at St. Andrew’s University in Scotland before beginning his rabbinic education at Leo Baeck College. While spending his third year at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Philadelphia, he met his wife, Jenny, who was also a student there. They married in 2004 and have two beautiful children: a daughter, Zafra, now 4 years old, and a son, Asher, who is just one. They also have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Parker making them a global family: an American Mum, a British Dad, dual-citizen children and a Welsh dog.
Rabbi Neil’s rabbinic thesis looked at bipolar gender boundaries and transsexual surgery in a Jewish context. In 2007, he founded IDEA: Interfaith Dorset Education and Action, now the South of England’s largest interfaith environmental network. When he’s not with his family, working, cycling, or geeking out to Star Wars, he is working on his first book about a new aspect of Jewish theology.
