Hike with Tsad Kadima

Dear Hikers,
Sadly, last March after much preparation we were forced to cancel the 2020 Hike for Hope.  With the future still unclear, we are holding off setting dates for the 2021 hike. But we have GOOD NEWS! We have arranged a series of 6 hikes, on three different days in February, to give you a chance to get out and hike and even wear a 2020 Hike for Hope T-shirt!  You can participate for free if you registered for the 2020 hike, and if you did not register, by making a 500 NIS donation to Tsad Kadima and get a T-shirt too.

Here are the hikes we are planning, rated by difficulty:

Tuesday February 2th

Moderate: Nahal Havarim to Upper Avdat led by Asher. A great 12.5 km hike near Sde Boker with a shortened option after 7.5 km.

Challenge: Gev Yamin to Ein Yorkeam on the Israel Trail led by Deborah. Some of the most amazing scenery in Israel is covered in this 9 km hike . There is an option for camping the night before.

Wednesday February 10th

Family: Yatir Forest to Amasa on the Israel Trail led by Marc.  For kids and anyone who wants a leisurely pace and easier route. This 8.2 km route is through the lovely Yatir forest.

Sunday February 21th

Family: Ya’ar Ruchama led by Marc. Expect to see the northern Negev painted in anemone RED. Fun 8 km route.

Moderate: Kfar Nokdim to Masada on a new section of the Israel Trail led by Asher. This is a 13.4 km route ending at Masada.

Wednsday March 3rd

Challenge: Nahal Mazar and Machtesh HaKatan led by  Deborah. This 11 km hike south of Dimona needs  a very early departure or an option to  camp out the night before.

Hikes will generally begin about 9 am at the starting point. We will try to arrange drivers so let us know if you can drive and take other persons (up to 3 in a car). Bring your own food but expect some surprises… Register by filling your name for the hike you want to attend in the form HERE<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eYq-vPuQQQE5l4zPyQxwQeFOxDmahgn68ERODr8dqZ4/edit?usp=sharing>. Let us know even if you are not sure and we will keep you posted on arrangements.

Looking forward to seeing you on one of these hikes!
