Save the date for the
Ramah Israel Bike Ride and Hiking Trip
May 9-16, 2017

The Ramah Israel Bike Ride and Hiking Trip is a fully supported, seven-day ride or hike through central Israel that raises funds to support Ramah programs for children, teens, and young adults with disabilities. In 2015, more than 110 participants raised nearly $450,000 for these inspiring programs.

We will ride and hike along a “Med to Dead” (Mediterranean Sea to Dead Sea) route, making important stops to support the communities in S’derot and the western Negev, spending three nights in or near Jerusalem, and riding through the Judean Hills. Our trip will culminate in a moving closing ceremony atop Masada.

  1. Today was my first bike ride in 2016, outside (just a short one). So, I suppose my training for the Ramah Israel Bike Ride 2017, has officially started! And, in a few days we’ll be saying בשנה הבאה ב׳רושל׳ס, so I knew it was the right time to get started. For those of you considering the Ramah Israel Bike & Hike 2017, the 2015 trip was excellent. The Ramah camaraderie, the friendships, the scenery in Israel, as well as how well the ride/hike, meals and accommodations were organized….all tremendous attributes, and a splendid tribute to the Ramah Team.

    Were the hills in Israel challenging? Sure. But somehow, each day those climbs were soon erased from our minds as we relaxed and chatted about the day’s events. For my wife Margy (a hiker) and me, it was the trip of a lifetime. I’m not sure too many people read these blogs, and nobody at Ramah asked me to write this…but for more color on the trip, I can be reached at Or, perhaps take Nike’s advice, and……”Just Do It”! Thanks for reading.
