There is no better way to celebrate the impending arrival of summer than to participate on the Walk for Israel with family and friends. At the same time, you'll raise funds to support children at risk in Israel, many of whom don't have strong family support in their own lives.
On Sunday, June 11th at 10:00 A.M., a 5-kilometre walk will take us through beautiful Victoria Park. Afterwards, we'll enjoy a kosher lunch courtesy of the Waterloo Region Jewish Community Council. In the past five years, through the Walk for Israel, the Kitchener-Waterloo Jewish community has raised over $50,000 for Youth Futures, a program in Kiryat Shmona that mentors Israeli children who need direction in life. We continue to support this essential program because children are the future of Israel. So come on down on June 11th to Beth Jacob Synagogue - 161 Stirling St. South.. Have some fun, get some fresh air, meet up with friends and come together as a community for this special event.
