Yes, Its been a while -But this is for somthing good

Since arriving in Israel three years ago, I have felt a strong need to get involved and do something to help with the matzav/situation. Unfortunately, when we made aliyah, I was already too old to join even the reserves of the IDF! Aside from contributing funds to and volunteering for important organizations, delivering food to our chayalim/soldiers and visiting families and victims of terror, I wanted to do more.

Please G-d, I will joining 375+ people from across the globe in “The Wheels of Love”, a 5-day, 350 km bike ride from Jerusalem to Eilat to benefit the Alyn Hospital. Alyn is Israel’s only comprehensive pediatric and adolescent rehabilitation center and one of the world’s leading specialists in active and intensive rehabilitation for children. Children with congenital and/or acquired conditions, victims of car, domestic accidents and terror attacks, head trauma, and cancer are treated at the hospital.

My personal goal is to raise $5,000. I would like to give you the opportunity to participate in this mitzvah by sponsoring me on this ride and making a contribution. Any donation, large or small, will be significant. You can make a donation directly to Alyn Hospital and help Israel in a meaningful and very personal way. All donations are tax-deductible and can be made over the internet via I will be notified of all on-line donations.

I would like to thank you in advance for your participation in this worthy cause and partnering with me in this mitzvah. Together we will make a significant impact on the lives of the physically challenged children of the Alyn Hospital, whose struggles for independence and mobility are not just for the five days of the ride - but are constant! Feel free to pass this letter on to anyone who might share your enthusiasm.

With blessings from the Holy Land,
