Our riders and hikers had magnificent weather today for their journeys east towards Jerusalem. For our riders, it was a combination of ascending and descending through amazing natural beauty. Our hikers descended from the Soreq canyon into the Wadi K’talav, following a majestic path shaded by lush vegetation. (See links below to view complete daily itineraries.)
Here’s what some of our delightedly exhausted participants told us about the day:
“Today we had a beautiful ride through the Judean Hills. We rode undulating hills past wheat fields, vineyards, and even an onion field. It’s too bad my GoPro can’t record smells. We had a stop toward the end of the ride at Bet Guvrin, a giant archeological site. Some of us capped off the afternoon with a second ride along the Jerusalem bike path. All in all, a fantastic day!” – Rabbi Bradley Tecktiel, rider
Check out a few of today’s photos – more coming soon!
We continue to get closer and closer to our goal of $450,000: As of today, we have raised $444,000 for our Ramah Tikvah programs! Tomorrow we will enjoy a day of riding and hiking in the area surrounding Jerusalem before entering into a peaceful Shabbat.
