The 2012 Hazon Cross-USA ride is coming to Chicago!  This summer, 20 bicyclists are riding from Seattle to DC to promote sustainable food systems and raise funds for innovative projects.

Join us for a segment of the cross-country ride departing from Chicago on July 30th: 10 days to Pittsburgh or nearly three weeks to Washington, DC!  For more information, visit www.hazon.org/crossusa or contact crossusa@hazon.org, 212-644-2332 ext. 332.

Hazon, meaning vision, is the largest Jewish-based environmental non-profit organization in North America.  We create transformative experiences, including multi-day bike rides across Israel and the US, in California and New York.  

As the Cross-USA Ride stops in Chicago, join us for a series of hands-on learning events about food and agriculture. 

Sunday July 29 - a Jewish event without food? It’s Tisha b’Av, a traditional fast day.  There are millions of people who go hungry every day. Join us for an afternoon of interactive learning on topics to include: hunger amidst plenty, community-based farming as a way to create food security, and Jewish traditions surrounding food, eating, fasting, celebrating.  We will have snacks.

Leading this session will be:  

Nigel Savage, Hazon

Jill Zenoff and Anne Axelrod LaForti, The Gan Project

Larry Goldberg, community leader

Rabbi Lizzi Heydemann, Mishkan Chicago

Marty Levine, JCCs of Chicago

Rabbi Menachem Cohen, Mitziut

and others.
