For the first time since 2007, we enjoyed a relaxing Shabbat weekend and two-day bike ride at Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center. Over 200 people came together to create a beautiful of community of cyclists, crew, family, and friends. Together so far we have raised $170,000 in support of healthier and more sustainable communities in the Jewish world and beyond.
Our annual Labor Day weekend bike ride, and the longest running Hazon event, began with a vibrant Shabbat, bringing people of all backgrounds together. The first day of riding took cyclists through the Connecticut and Massachusetts Berkshires. The second day of riding followed the classic Hazon route down the Westchester trail. Riders were welcome to Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) by Chancellor Arnie Eisen who spoke eloquently about the commitment of Hazonniks to Jewish Values, specifically to Tikkun Olam and connecting with the natural world.
