I am pleased to announce that I am riding in the 2018 Israel Ride. This will be my third time riding 150+ miles with 200 other cyclists supporting two greatorganizations that are doing important environmental work in the Middle east and the United Stes, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon.
The primary beneficiary of the ride-the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies-is the premier environmental teaching and research academic program in the Middle East. The Institute educates students from Israel, the West Bank, Jordan, the United States and other English speaking countries, preparing them to cooperatively solve the region's environmental challenges. With its unique student body, the Institute also addresses the elephant in the room, with coursework that teaches them the skills to listen to each other with respect and trust. As the Institute's executive director says, "The only thing harder to find in the Middle East than water is trust." For more information on the Institute, check out their web site www.arava.org.
I have committed to raise at least $3800 towards this cause, and your contribution is greatly appreciated. Would you consider making a donation at whatever level you are able? All contributions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your support!
