Admin History/Bio
For Israel's 50th birthday, the Walk for Israel underwent many dramatic changes. Renamed the "Israel at 50 Fun Walk," the "march as one" style became a more staggered walk again, with a brand new 7.5 kilometre route in downtown Toronto. The new Walk was more high profile and elaborate, starting with opening ceremonies and entertainment at Nathan Phillips Square, then winding through Old Jewish Toronto through two checkpoints and on to Ontario Place, where the Israel at 50 Festival was held. The date of the Walk was Sunday May 24 and its slogan was "Let's Step Together." The chairs were Jeff Cohen, Fran Grundman and Corey Mandell, with the assistance of committee members and Walk staff Silvia Astrug and Naomi Cohen. More than 15,000 people turned out for the day and more than $250,000 were raised.

Admin History/Bio
In 1994, the Walk was renamed the Community March for Israel to give it a strong feeling of community spirit, solidarity and unity. The route was significantly shortened to 5 kilometres and it started at a precise time so that all participants walked together; as the posters read, "We walk as one!" The event was held on Sunday, May 29th. It was chaired by Judy Engel and Alan Winer with UJA staff coordinator Vicki Weiss overseeing the planning and the work of committees. Close to 7,000 participants raised about $100,000 to support teenage olim (immigrants) in Israel. Related fundraisers include the second annual Aerobathon, dances held by B.B.Y.O and Reena-Kadima-C.H.A.T, and a pre-March run of 10 kilometres.

The 1995 Community March for Israel took place on Sunday, May 28th, Yom Yerushalayim. It was chaired by Maura Cooperberg and Jeff Cohen with past chair Judy Engel serving as Advisor. Campaign Associate Ronit Climan was staff coordinator and Marcy Kroach and Gilda Niman headed the planning of the Festival. The theme of the March was "From Metulla to Eilat," emphasizing how UJA was helping Israel youth "throughout the length and breadth of the country." The 5 kilometre route again went from the Promenade Mall at Bathurst and Clark to the Bathurst JCC. Mayors of both Metulla and Eilat (Yossi Goldberg and Gabi Kadosh) were present and led the March. At the Festival, the mainstage entertainment was headlined by The Stars Band and Liberty Silver.

Admin History/Bio
The 1996 Community March for Israel took place on Sunday, May 26th. Its theme was "Journey to Jerusalem" and the Festival was called the Jerusalem 3000 Festival in honour of the city's birthday. The goal was to raise awareness and support for UJA's projects in Jerusalem and in the end more than 7000 people came out to support it. The 1996 March chairs were Maura Cooperberg and Jeff Cohen, and the staff coordinator was Karen Worb.
The Festival this year was a joint effort between UJA and the Canadian Zionist Federation; its chairs were Marcy Kroach and Gilda Niman from UJA, and Tillie Margolis and Ehud Savion from CZF. Due to the inclement weather the previous year, the planners opted to hold the Festival indoors, at the North York Centennial Arena at 580 Finch Avenue West. Once again, the March route began at the Promenade Shopping Centre and led south on Bathurst to the arena.

For the first time, there was also a shorter Bub 'n' Zaid-a-thon to encourage multi-generation families to walk together. More than 500 volunteers and approximately 15,000 people participated in the "Funwalk '99", making it the largest turnout the Walk for Israel had ever had.

The route also changed this year, going south from Nathan Phillips Square to Wellington Street, then west to Blue Jays Way and north to the second checkpoint at Alexandra Park (at Bathurst and Dundas). From there participants proceeded to the third checkpoint at Trinity Bellwoods Park and then south to Ontario Place and the Israel Funwalk Festival.
