In 2012, after a hiatus of 25 years, the annual Walk for Israel returned to Kitchener-Waterloo, ON. In the past 3 years, the Kitchener-Waterloo Walk for Israel has raised over $30,000 CAD for Youth Futures Kiryat Shmona, a Jewish Agency for Israel mentoring program that supports Israeli youth-at-risk.
“We are thrilled to bring the ‘Walk for Israel’ back to the community for the fourth consecutive year. It is an ideal way for people to raise money for a great cause while spending time with family and friends and enjoying a good walk on a spring day,” said Jeff Budd, event organizer. “We encourage people and organizations to get involved as participants, sponsors, walkers and/or donors.”
The 5 km route starts and finishes at Beth Jacob Synagogue at 161 Stirling Ave. South in Kitchener at and winds through Victoria Park.
So come on down to Beth Jacob Synagogue on June 14th. We'll have some fun, meet up with friends and come together as a community for this special event.
