Adam’s Ride Ma'alot - March 5th 2019



Adam’s Ride – 613 Acts of Kindness in memory of Adam Laurance “Veritas” Rosen

Join us for a meaningful and unforgettable 3-day ride in memory of Adam Laurance ‘Veritas’ Rosen. We’ll start at the newly inaugurated Adam Laurance “Veritas” Rosen Fire and Rescue Station in Ma’alot in the north of Israel. The Fire Station was built in Adam’s memory with the generosity of his parents, Stephen and Penny Rosen through the help of JNFUSA. The new station also honors the memories of 22 children and 9 adult Israelis massacred in Ma’alot on May 15, 1974.

Before the ride begins, and along the way, riders will hand 

out “good” cards and encourage all of the people we meet along the way to do an act of kindness in memory of Adam.

On our journey, we will also visit Tzfat, circle the Kinneret, ride through the Jordan Valley, spend a night in Jerusalem, and daven at the Kotel. We will end our ride at the Benjamin and Yetta Rosen Fire and Rescue Station in Mitzpeh Ramon in the Negev, built to honor Benjamin and Yetta Rosen by the Rosen family through the help of JNFUSA.
