2024 Arava Institute Mission: Insights into the Region

October 27 - November 4

October 27 – November 1, 2024

After months of careful consideration and given the volatility of the situation in Israel, we’ve concluded that this is not the year for a large bike ride in Israel. As a result, we have decided to CANCEL the 2024 Israel Ride. It pains us to reach this decision. We are mindful of the collective trauma that Israel experienced on October 7th and in the events since then. All of this has strengthened our conviction about the importance of the Arava Institute, even as it drove our decision to cancel the Israel Ride.

Recognizing that some of our Riders would like to visit Israel this year, we are offering a smaller trip to Israel called, Arava Institute Mission: Insights into the Region, which will include an opportunity to bear witness to some of the impacts of October 7th and an immersive experience day at the Arava Institute. Circumstances permitting, we will also ride 2 of the most popular days of our regular Israel Ride route. We will also provide non-riding options for those 2 days. These could include volunteering and/or additional exposure to Arava Institute projects in Israel.

Join us on the Mission and support the work of the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies. Learn more about the Mission here!

Registration for the Mission is not open yet. For any questions, please email elana@friendsofarava.org.
