I am pleased to announce that I am riding in my second Israel Ride from November 5-12, 2019.
I will be riding from Jerusalem to Eilat, @280 miles, exploring Israel and learning about the work of two great organizations, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon with all funds split on @70%/30% (Arava/Hazon)
The Arava Institute, established in 1996, was named one of the top 100 environmental think tanks in the world. Students, primarily from Israel, Jordan, and the West Bank, live together in suites while studying water management, renewable energy, ecology, and sustainable agriculture. They have weekly sessions on leadership, to discuss their different cultures and to learn cooperation by working on projects together. Hazon, founded in 1999, is based in NYC. It promotes creating sustainable communities in the Jewish world and beyond.
I have committed to raise at least $7000 towards this cause, and I have donated $500 to help meet my commitment. With your generosity and my pedaling, we can attain our goal. Todah rabah, Jon
Thanks for your support!
