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 ( 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.
