Sponsor someone to walk around Jerusalem (Psalms 48:12)

Women for Israel's Tomorrow (Women In Green ) in the observance of an ancient custom, will again arrange for the annual Walk around the Walls of the Old City of Jerusalem on Tisha B'Av evening. This year the Event will take place on Wednesday, July 17, 2002.

The Walk commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples which occurred on the same day, 2588 and 1,932 years ago, respectively. Those participating, at the same time, will be praying for the rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem on the sacred Temple Mount.

Despite the existing Arab terrorist activities, more than 80,000 persons participated in the Walk last year; two years ago, more than 100,000 people took part.

We hope that you are able to come to Jerusalem to personally participate in the Walk. However, even if you are not able to be in Jerusalem for this special Memorial Day on the 9th day of the Hebrew Month of Av, you can participate in this Walk by sponsoring a person to Walk in your behalf.

The minimum amount for sponsoring such a person is $25, but you are urged to contribute beyond that sum at this critical hour for Jerusalem. It is also your personal statement in support of the City of G-d.

Each contributor sponsoring a participant in the Walk, in his or her behalf, will be sent a card that specifies your personal participation or sponsorship in this historical event.

Wherever you are located, you will have the spiritual experience of having walked around the Old City Walls in Holy Jerusalem on Tisha B'Av evening.

Now more than ever we need people who will identify with the Prophet Isaiah who said: "For Jerusalem's sake, I will not be silent."
