Hadassah’s Youth Aliyah Village, Meir Shfeya, Prepares for the Jerusalem Marathon

Thursday, Mar 17 2016

The Shfeya running team participating in the Tiberias Marathon.

A year and a half ago the idea of starting a small running group came to mind. To the surprise of the staff, more and more high school students wanted to join.

In the beginning Hadassah's Youth Aliyah village, Shfeya, began by running five kilometers, but this year the team was prepared to raise the stakes and go for ten kilometers.

Currently the group has 80 runners. The athletes range from 7 to 12 grade. In addition to the student runners, youth counselors, young women army counselors, house mothers and teachers make up the rest of the Meir Shfeya team.

This year the group participated in the Tiberias Marathon. The goal was to run the Tiberias Marathon in preperation for the Jerusalem Marathon in March. Although it was pouring uncontrollably during the Tiberias Marathon, the runners never gave up, and in the end they reached the finish line. On March 18, the Jerusalem Marathon will be held. 60 runners have signed on to complete 10 kilometers, while 20 runners committed to a half marathon, 21 kilometers.
