In October I will be riding on the Hazon Israel Ride from Jerusalem to Eilat, a distance of about 285 miles in 5 days. The ride is both physically challeging(especially for a 71 year old) and a way to raise funds for the Arava Environmental Institute and Hazon, both of which are important organizations. The Arava Institute focuses on Environmental sustainability in the Negev Desert and environmental problems throughout the Middle East. Its students include Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel as well as international students including a number of Arab citizens of other Middle Eastern countries. Hazon is in the forefront of a growing Jewish enviromental movement in the United States. I am committed to raising $3800 for these organizations and hope you can help with a contribution!! Together with other riders we hope to raise close to a million dollars for education and advocacy on these environmenal issues. If you can afford $100 or more that would be amazing but truly every gift, no matter the amount, is incredibly appreciated!!! I look forward to sending you updates on the ride and about the tremendous work of the Arava Institute.
Thanks much, Jeremy
