A project of the Chabad Day School in Johannesburg is a finalist in a global Community Service competition.
Cycalive was initiated by Torah Academy in 1998 soon after the end of Apartheid. It has been selected to be a finalist from 83 projects across 30 countries in a global competition.
The competition is seeking Jewish volunteer projects addressing social responsibility and having a transformative impact on society’s vulnerable and needy.
In a world fractured by racial tension, CYCALIVE has done much to cultivate hope and to inspire thousands of students to reach for positive dreams. Cycalive is an annual bicycle ride from Johannesburg to Durban covering 700km.
It teaches that pride, passion, and commitment to one’s culture and religion, rather than compromise, can help breed tolerance, empathy, and respect of diversity.
Winning this competition will highlight the international reach of Chabad in caring for all Hashem’s children and countering racism. It will create a Kiddush Hashem particularly in the present climate of divisiveness and hate.
