8 Colorado Riders Complete the 2016 Israel Ride

Eight riders from Colorado formed Team Rocky Mountain Chai and participated in the 2016 Israel Ride (www.israelride.org) which supports Hazon and the Arava Institute.  There were 175 riders, 12 chaverim (spouses and others that toured along the route but did not ride) and 60 staff and crew.  We rode from Jerusalem to Eilat over six days (November 9-14), resting on Shabbat in Mitzpe Ramon.  Our team raised nearly $24,000, and the entire ride raised $775,000.

The team included me, my wife Karen Raizen (she was in the chaverim group and is not pictured), Allan Davidson, Denali Davidson, Jonathan Miller, Beth Miller, Ken Tolz and Jeff Bain.  Also in the picture is Nigel Savage, Founder and CEO of Hazon.  Rabbi Marc Soloway did not ride but did join us for Shabbat.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound III," because I'm a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
