2011 Israel Rider Elahn Zetlin has shared four more great videos highlighting each day of his trip, cycling from Jerusalem to Eilat (we’ve also got the first two). The weather is beautiful, the scenery is fantastic, and you can’t beat the footage taken from a camera strapped to his helmet! We’ll let Elahn do the talking:

Elahn Zetlin has put together a few great videos of highlights from his ride from Jerusalem to Eilat on the Arava Institute and Hazon Israel Ride. Seeing the ride from his perspective makes these videos really unique. Elahn’s camera is most often attached to his helmet and handlebars, giving you a real view from the road.

When someone comes on a Hazon ride for the first time, it usually turns out that it’s just the first of many rides they will join us for, and often returning with friends and family. Maddy Yasner and Yossi Hoffman are a perfect example of how this happens. Maddy’s family loves Hazon – her father, Michael Yasner, did the Hazon Arava Institute Israel Ride in 2008, and her mother, Val, is Co-Chair of the Hazon CSA is South Jersey. In 2010, Maddy, her sister, and both their parents decided to do the New York Ride together. As part of their training over the summer, they rode Bike to the Beach, and convinced Yossi Hoffman, Maddy’s boyfriend, to come along. Yossi hadn’t been on a bike in quite some time, and even though they did the shortest 15 mile route, he found it to be difficult and challenging. After Bike to the Beach, he began to train with Maddy almost every weekend (renting a bike each time) and found that riding quickly got easier, and a lot more fun. After Maddy experienced her first New York Ride, which she found to be very rewarding, she and Yossi were both set on training for and completing this year’s Ride together. Yossi was so excited about the Ride that he even joined the planning committee, and is one of only two first-time riders on the committee. (more…)
One of the grant recipients of this year’s New York Ride and Retreat is Yiddish Farm, a program started this year with the goal of creating a pluralistic Yiddish-speaking community through farm-based programs. Yiddish Farm ran its pilot program this summer, with about 10 people who made up a Yiddish-speaking agricultural community on Kayam Farm, a sustainable farm in Maryland. In 2012, Yiddish Farm will move to a farm they have rented in Goshen, NY, which is not far from New York City, where they hope to eventually keep their community running year-round. Earlier this summer, The Jew and the Carrot interviewed Naftali Eidelman, who started Yiddish Farm along with Yisroel Bass. Here are some pieces of the interview that really give a sense of what Yiddish Farm is all about: (more…)
