I am pleased to announce that I am riding in my 5th Israel Ride.
This fall, I will be joining cyclists from all over the US, Israel, Australia, and other places, as we ride our bikes from Jerusalem to Eilat, around 300 miles, exploring Israel and learning about the work two great organizations, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon.

We ride for Peace, we ride for the Environment, we ride in support of Israel.
The Israel Ride is a fundraising event benefiting two innovative organizations – The Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon. It was founded to show solidarity with Israel at a very difficult time, and to provide new avenues for supporting their critical environmental programs. In May 2003, the first Israel Ride attracted 34 riders and collected over $50,000. In 2005, the partnership expanded to include the Friends of the Arava Institute, and it became the US charity of record. Also in 2005, Jewish National Fund joined as a key marketing partner, establishing a national Team JNF with regional teams across the country.
The Arava Institute for Environmental Studies is the premier environmental teaching and research program in the Middle East, preparing future Arab and Jewish leaders to cooperatively solve the region’s environmental challenges. Through its activities, the Arava Institute encourages, fosters, and supports the advancement of environmental cooperation between Israel and its neighbors.
Hazon works to create a healthier and more sustainable Jewish community and more sustainable world for all. Through a series of retreats, food educational programs, and a growing network of like-minded organizations, Hazon provides transformative experiences and innovated educational programming within the Jewish community.

The Israel Ride has continued to build upon its passion for connecting people to Israel’s land and culture, fostering l friendships, and advocating for a sustainable, secure, and peaceful Middle East. Today, with over 1,800 alumni riders, the Israel Ride provides participants with a one-of-a-kind experience through its diverse itineraries that traverse the Negev Desert and surrounding areas.
Please explore our causes and learn more about our key partners that make riding the Israel Ride a true passion. I have committed to raise at least $4000 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.
