Thank you so much for making the ride a success. We had so many participants we ran out of food! With donations from Anshe Emet and Moishe House and your contributions we now have money for food, printing, etc. for our next ride on Sunday, September 9th (calendar event link here).
We are almost there! Only 3 days until we ride. At 10 am we will have snacks, coffee and a short tour at DIC. At 10:30 we are off! Anshe Emet and Moishe House are covering part of the cost for lunch at the clocktower in Lakeview around 12. We are asking $5 to cover the rest so everyone can eat. Any extra money will go towards planning and food for future rides. It will all be vegetarian. See you at 10 am at DIC!
We will meet at the Downtown Islamic Center at 10:00 am, ride by 3 synagogues and the American Islamic College in Lakeview East. We will end our ride with a picnic and conversation in a nearby park.
