Friends of the Arava Institute
October 26, 2009
I began to learn about the Arava Institute when I signed up for the Spring 2008 Israel Bike Ride. By the end of the ride, I was sold. The ride was beautifully organized, with care and consideration for the riders' physical, psychological and spiritual health. And the opportunity to learn more about the work of the Arava Institute and meet their current and former students was awe-inspiring. This small organization is making an impact on the environment of many countries in the middle east, and is a model of cross-cultural collaboration.
Their influence exceeds their size, and they use their limited resources wisely.
