Come out and walk with Israel May 21 2012.
Funds raised through the Walk support UJA-funded programs in Israel*, including immigration and absorption of new olim, as well as transformative programs that benefit vulnerable communities in Sderot, Bat Yam and Eilat. Dollars raised through the Walk go towards:
- Reducing social gaps and providing educational opportunities for at-risk youth in Bat Yam through after-school activities and educational enrichment initiatives
- Increasing social mobility and economic independence for poverty-stricken Ethiopian Israelis in Bat Yam through professional and vocational training in various lines of work, including nursing, early childhood education, bookkeeping and more
- Higher education and programs for young people in Israel’s southern region of Eilat/Eilot, including career development and teaching future generations about renewable energy and sustainable development
- Urgent social welfare and educational projects for residents of the beleaguered city of Sderot, which has endured unprecedented rocket attacks over the past decade.
The walk route this year will take you through the streets of downtown Toronto and along the water. For more information visit : WalkWithIsrael.com
