A Great Cycling Adventure for a Worthy Cause!
I am very excited to announce that I am riding in the 2018 Israel Ride (https://israelride.org)! Having recently biked with a wonderful group called the Palm Pedalers from Miami to Key West and back, I am looking for a meaningful next challenge. And, the Israel Ride fits the bill perfectly.
Cyclists will ride from Jerusalem to Eilat, between 150 and 350 miles depending on skill/experience, exploring Israel and learning about the work of two great organizations, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon.
The primary beneficiary of the Israel Ride is the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies. The Arava Institute, located on Kibbutz Ketura in southern Israel, is the only academic and research institute that brings together Israelis, Palestinians, Jordanians, and students from around the world to study and work together to solve the region’s critical environmental challenges. Today over 1200 alumni are part of a growing international network that challenges stereotyping and offers a new paradigm for trust and cooperation that will build a more sustainable and peaceful Middle East. To learn more about the work of the Arava Institute, or about the environmental movement in Israel, check out www.arava.org.
The second beneficiary of the Israel Ride is Hazon, one of most innovative organizations in the American Jewish community and now the largest Jewish environmental organization in the United States. The word “Hazon” means vision. They create healthier and more sustainable communities in the Jewish world and beyond. Through bike rides, food conferences, and other Jewish sustainability programs, Hazon brings people together, builds community, and promotes sustainability and vibrant Jewish life. You can learn more at www.hazon.org.
I have committed to raise at least $4000 towards support of Arava and Hazon, and your contribution is greatly appreciated. Please consider making a donation at whatever level you are able. All contributions are so greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your support!
