Nachum welcomed Rabbi Uri Vigler to this morning’s JM in the AM to introduce the listeners to Belev Echad. Nachum and Rabbi Vigler discussed the organization and the upcoming Bike4BelevEchad event. From the Belev Echad website: “Since the founding of the State of Israel, hundreds of thousands of young Jewish men and women have risked their lives and limbs to protect the Jewish people and ensure the security of our homeland.
Founded in New York City in 2009, Belev Echad established a global initiative to honor these brave warriors and their families, residing both in Israel and the United States, through a system of love, support and education. Through programs for wounded warriors, career counseling, scholarship funds and social and educational events, we make a small, but meaningful, contribution towards repaying them for their service.”
As discussed in the interview, on Sunday, April 29, BIKE4BELEVECHAD invites bikers of all ages and skill levels to raise awareness and funds for the veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces. Our trip will be captained by 10 wounded warriors of the IDF, already knee-deep in training. If they can do it so can you!
Beginning on the East Side, our ride will take us through Central Park, around the Hudson River, across the George Washington Bridge, up to the Bronx, and into Westchester County. We will keep you fed, refreshed and hydrated through up to 75 miles of challenging and invigorating bike trail.
