Andrew Fischer was one of the forty hardy pioneers who rode on the first Arava Ride. He has done the ride five times since, including several times with his son, Teddy, who lives in Rishon leTzion and once virtually, with his cohort David Schreiber, in order to continue raising money for The Arava Institute when covid prevented him from doing the ride in Israel. Andrew practiced law for forty years, primarily representing bicyclists. Now semi-retired, he only does pro-bono work, representing bicycle advocacy groups supporting bike paths and rail trails, and representing climate activists. Andrew strongly believes in the Arava motto "nature knows no borders” and supports the work of the Arava Institute because peace will only come when Israelis and Palestinians learn to accept each other’s claim to the land by working together to protect it, as The Arava Institute enables us to do.
