The 18th annual Walk for Israel drew 12,000 participants, and an additional 3000 who came to the Festival. The Walk was held on Sunday, May 17th and had the traditional route -- 18 kilometres for the 18th Walk -- south along Bathurst to Eglinton and then north on Avenue Road/Bathurst to the Festival at the Bathurst JCC. The event came together, as always, with the energy and organization of hundreds of volunteers, as well as the UJA Committee chaired by Gloria Clamen. The money raised this year went towards a daycare centre in Kfar Gvirol. At the Festival, two artists in their eighties, Henry Weingluck and Hannah Sandberg, displayed their paintings. A bonfire for Lag B'Omer wrapped up the day.
