I am pleased to announce that I am riding in the 2019 Israel Ride.
Cyclists will be riding from Jerusalem to Eilat, about 270 miles over 5 days, 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. Arava is one of the leading environmental academic and reasearch institutions in the Middle East. Its mission is to use the world's environmental resource challenges to build dialog, cooperation, and trust among all the region's people and, in doing so, create a catalyst for peace.
The second beneficiary is Hazon which works to create a healthier and more sustainable Jewish community, and a healthier and sustainable world for all.
The people of the Middle East cannot live in peace unless they work together to solve their many problems, both political and environmental. I am pleased to be supporting both organizations efforts.
I will be self funding the substantial direct costs of this ride but I have also committed to raise at least $2,000 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.
You can donate by credit card by visiting my rider page at http://jewish.convio.net/goto/NeilWhitman or send me a check made out to "The Israel Ride." Make sure my name is in the memo. All donations are tax deductible.
Thanks for your support!
