THE STORY:

עם הנצח, יהדות ישראל והתפוצות, לא מפחד מדרך ארוכה.

אז אין טוב מריצת מרתון לבטא את המחיובות לאחדות ביניהם.

אז החלטתי לרוץ את מרתון ניו יורק 2017, במסגרת מגבית ל-UJA Fedreation, כביטוי מחויבות אישי שלי כישראלי לאחדות בין יהדות ישראל ליהדות התפוצות.


אני מזמין את חברי הישראלים, וחברי בכלל, להביע את מחויבותם לאחדות זו ע''י תרומה למוסד פילנטרופי יהודי אמריקאי חשוב זה, כפי שכל כך הרבה יהודית אמריקאים עושים ע''י תרומה למוסדות פילנטרופים שונים בישראל.


למה לעמוד זה לצד זה כשאפשר לרוץ ביחד לעתיד משותף.


Israel and American Jews are in it together for the long run.

What better way to honour that bond than running a Marathon?

So I am running the 2017 NYC marathon, raising funds for the UJA Federation, as a personal expression of my commimtent, as an Israeli, to Israel-Diaspora unity.


I invite my Israeli friends, and my friends in general, to express your commitment to this unity by contributing to this important Jewish American charity, just as American Jews have expressed theirs by notating to charities in Israel.


Why just stand together when we can run together to a share future?! 




UJA-Federation of New York cares for the Jewish community and New Yorkers of all backgrounds. This year we’re celebrating our centennial with 100 runners! Team UJA will raise funds to help tackle some of our community’s pressing challenges: fighting poverty, helping Holocaust survivors, and taking care of all New Yorkers in need. We're so thrilled you're joining us!
