Included in the roster of attractive activities taking place in Israel this coming Succot, the flagship “Kilometers for Koby – Young Professionals Hike” will undoubtedly emerge as the do-good/ feel-good event of the season.

Scheduled for the intermediate days of the holiday (Wednesday, October 3 and Thursday, October 4), participants will enjoy some of Israel’s most breathtaking woodland trails while at the same time forming new friendships with hikers who currently live in Israel, North America, Europe, South Africa and Australia.

The hike will be led by celebrated writer and Friendly Planet tour-guide Allan Rabinowitz, who will steer the group along the hills, streams and bucolic vistas of the Northern Galilee.

Accommodations include rooms and gardens at the pastoral Teva B’Yehiam Countryside Hotel (located on Kibbutz Yehiam) in the Western Galilee.

The ‘Kilometers for Koby Young Professionals Hike’ was created to raise funds for Camp Koby, a series of 10 day overnight summer camps that provide fun and healing for Israeli children who have lost a parent or sibling to terror or tragedy. The Koby Mandell Foundation was established in 2001 by Rabbi Seth and Sherri Mandell after their 13-year old son Koby was murdered near their home in Israel.
