HIKERS HELP: Some 50 Canadians and more than 30 Israeli victims of terror gathered in Jerusalem recently for the sixth annual OneFamily Cross Israel Hike, a challenging five-day trek to raise money and awareness for Israeli victims of terror.
OneFamily (www.onefamilytogether.org) is Israel’s only national organization solely dedicated to the rehabilitation of victims of terror attacks and their families. It established the hike as a way for Canadians to show solidarity with terror victims. “For its symbolism alone, hiking is a perfect way to show our solidarity. When we hike, we move toward our goal one step at a time. By supporting victims of terror, we help them heal one step at a time, one family at a time,” said Pam Albert, director of OneFamily Canada and a six-time event participant.
