Some folks are swimmers. Some folks are root-ers. I'm a root-er, and one of the things that makes me cheer louder than just about anything else is the Annual Women's Swim in the Kinneret.
Yes, in only a few days, the year's most exciting women's event is about to take place by the
– the third annual women's
swim-a-thon Swim4Sadna on Wednesday, May 23. The fundraising event for Shiluv
b'Emuna will help build a secure home for special needs young adults – enabling them to live within a supportive community, while they study and work and learn
to live independent lives. Sea of Kinneret
Sadnat Shiluv in Rosh Tzurim is a revolutionary triumph in education – helping special children integrate successfully in today's modern world.
For women swimmers, Swim4Sadna is a rare opportunity to swim the Kinneret together with hundreds of other women for an incredible cause.
Previous swims have helped contribute to the creation of one Shiluv b'Emunah apartment for young men already. This year's swim is aimed at creating a similar apartment for young women.
Join the Swim4Sadna for the experience of a lifetime! There are two routes to choose from - a 3.5k starting at
Haon Beach and a 1.5k starting at
Maagan Beach – each ending at . Tzemach
For anyone who wants to participate without jumping in the water, there's a fantastic “Fun & Fitness Day” on Tuesday, May 22, for women and girls 12+ at the Tzemach Junction. (There'll be a separate area for younger children.)
The exhilaration and powerful feelings of unity of purpose continue as even non-swimmers cheer on those who take to the water!!
Swim4Sadna is the brainchild of Vivienne Glaser, a mother of one of Sadnat Shiluv's graduates, and a powerhouse in the world of chesed and innovation.
The overall goal is 350,000
for the benefit of Shiluv
