This year, we plan to visit the following locations to learn about Israel and the environment, including:

  • Emek HaEla, where David slew Goliath
  • Makhtesh Ramon, an erosion crater that is a geological wonder
  • Neot Smadar, an all-organic kibbutz in the South of Israel
  • Timna, an ancient desert site with the world’s oldest copper mines
  • Lectures throughout the ride on water usage, energy, land usage and forestation

In addition to the wonders seen on the Ride itself, we offer a number of add-on tours available before and after the ride:

  • Life on an Invisible Border – Discover the beauty and complexity of life on the border of East and West Jerusalem, guided by Eliezer Ya’ari and Dr. Tareq Abu-Hamed
  • JNF Carmel Trip – Explore the Carmel mountains as part of a Jewish National Fund trip to northern Israel
  • Day of Learning at Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies – Jewish text study, engaging discussions, and of course, food. Participants have the opportunity to attend Pardes classes, taught in English, focus on Israel and environmental and leadership issues
  • Tours of Petra and Wadi Rum in Jordon
