The Friends Of the Arava Institute keeps an idealistic, ambitious organization for young environmental leaders, and for cooperation across cultures and political divides, going. It supports students who don't have the financial means, it recruits new students, and it serves as an invaluable backbone for the Arava Institute.

I haven't visited The Arava Institute, but I attended an event this summer and learned about it. I was very favorably impressed when I heard about the fantastic work they're doing. Two former students of the Institute, a Palestinian student and a Jewish student, spoke to us about their experiences. It was moving and wonderful. I hope the Institute's funding will increase so they'll be able to expand their work and bring more students.

The Great!

I first learned of the Arava Institute when I read about a fundraising bicycle ride in The Jerusalem Post in 2005, I decided then to participate in future rides and have done so each year since 2006. Friends of The Arava Institute provides great backup for the Ride and the monthly newsletter keeps me updated on the happenings of the Arava Institute and its alumni.

What a fantastic organization. Not only does the Institute seek to make the world a better place through teaching and research in environmental issues but at the same time it facilitates intercultural dialogue in a supportive environment that is hard to find anywhere else.

I was a student at the Arava Institute in 2006. I learned a tremendous amount and met phenomenal people. The Arava Institute provides hope to a region where many are hopeless, and gives people tools to move forward in peacebuilding and environmental conservation.

The Arava Institute is one of the few programs in the world that blends idealism with pragmatism. How our earth allocates environmental resources for the current and future generations is so critical for the sustainability of life on Earth. And how mankind gets along is the genius to Arava. Arava is a microcosm of what our world can and should be. Possible adversaries and now allies in a challenge to sustain the environment for us and future generations. My bike ride through the Arava Valley in 2004 inspired me then and now to write these thoughts. We are indebted to the leaders of The Arava Institute; and so are the generations to come. I just can't say enough.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

developing the concept that we are stewards for the environment. We are just passing thru and have a responsibility to maintain and impore the resources that God has bestowed upon us.

The Arava Institute is building possibilities for coexistence centered around shared environmental challenges that Arabs and Jews in Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Territories actually share. It is in all of the parties' interests to figure out how to share the same bioregion. The Arava Institute successfully trains environmental activists in the Middle East in an incredibly inhospitable political reality, and the participants get to know each other in the process across barriers of religion and war. It is an absolutely remarkable achievement.

Endow and secure its programs. I can't think of an organization more deserving.
