Yes! Lynn and I are finally riding in the 2018 Israel Ride.
Despite a false start some seven years ago, we are finally going to do it. We will join other bicyclists riding from Jerusalem to Eilat, to support the work of two important organizations, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon.
The Arava Institute is a major environmental educational facility that supports cross-border programs with Jordanians, Palestinians and Israelis, focused on solving the region’s most pressing environmental problems. Hazon provides entry points for Jews of all backgrounds who are concerned about the environment and the world.
Please learn more about both - each group has a good home page on the web, with plenty of links for further learning.
Seventy percent of all donations go to the Arava Institute, thirty percent to Hazon. Contributions at any level are greatly appreciated. Even more importantly, we hope you'll take a moment to learn more about the crucial work of these organizations.
Thanks for your interest and support!
