Friends of the Arava Institute is very conscious of making sure that they money it raises gets to the institute that it supports. Because the Arava Institute has such universal appeal, it is a cause behind which not only Jews, but also non-Jews can really around.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bring many more Arabs and Jews together to work on the an issue that has no borders.

This is a worthwhile organization both for its environmental mission of awareness and in building bridges among Israelis, Palestinians and Jordanians. There are few organizations willing to take the risks and engage in edgy, creative activities to help people from diverse and potential hostile groups interact. The personal interactions with speakers, high level political persona and topical experts make this a very important entity to pay attention to and support!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

probably create environmentally friendly settlements in all 3 regions that would cooperate, prosper, trade and intermingle as a social and political model for others in the region.
