I am pleased to announce that I am riding in the 2019 Israel Ride.
Cyclists will be riding from Jerusalem to Eilat, between 150 and 350 miles, exploring Israel and learning about the work 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 Institute is working to confront the serious environmental challenges in Israel, by creating a leadership network of environmentalists through important research, and through public involvement. The Arava Institute draws students from across the Middle East, encouraging environmental cooperation between peoples, and working towards peace and sustainable development on a regional and global scale. To learn more about the work of the Arava Institute, or about the environmental movement in Israel, check out http://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. Hazon is the Jewish lab for sustainability. 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
Both organizations are making a positive difference for the future and I encourage you to learn about them. I am personally underwriting all the costs associated with the bike ride, my personal travel, hotels, airfare and food. However, in addition to those costs, I have committed to raise at least $3950 for these organizations. Because I'm underwriting all these costs, 100% of any contribution you make is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law (my attorney made me put in the part about "allowed by law"). Would you consider making a donation at whatever level you are able?
Thanks for considering my request!
