Admin History/Bio
The Israel Funwalk 2000 took place on Sunday, 28 May 2000. As in recent years, it began with a "MEGA [Mandell Entertainment Group Amusements] Carnival" at Nathan Phillips Square. That was followed by a route including Old Jewish Toronto, leading to Trinity Bellwoods Park, and then south to Ontario Place, where the Funwalk Festival was held. The co-chairs of the walk were Fran Grundman and Harvey Cooperberg. For the first time, an entertainment coordinator was specially named: Corey Mandell, a longtime participant in the planning and entertainment for the walk. The UJA coordinator was Naomi Cohen. A new feature of the event this year was a five-kilometre Fun Run for adults with its own attractions and incentives.

In 2001, the Israel Funwalk was held on Victoria Day, Monday, 21 May. The chairs this year were Abe Glowinsky and Elyza Litwin Polsky, and Naomi Cohen was once again the staff coordinator. An adult, seven-kilometre fun run commenced fifteen minutes before the walk and followed the same route. While the walk had had a web presence as early as 1999, 2001 was the first time online registration was offered. 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.

In 2002, reacting to the recent wave of violence in Israel, the walk was renamed the Walk with Israel to underline that it was an act of community solidarity. With a new slogan, "Now. More Than Ever," the Walk was scheduled for 20 May 2002. The money raised went towards helping children affected by the crisis in Israel. The chairs were Abe Glowinsky and Elyza Polsky, with coordinator Naomi Cohen and administrator Cindy Bogach. Special guests were Mel Lastman, the then mayor of Toronto; Meir Romen, the then Israeli consul general; and Ra'anin Gissin, key advisor and principal spokesperson for the then Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon. Gissin gave the keynote speech at the festival.
In addition to the usual sub-committees, there was a new one: School Projects. These were artistic menorahs created by each school that were displayed at the festival. Once again, the five-kilometre adult fun run took place. A new route this year took participants in a loop from the Sky Dome, north and across Nassau/Cecil/Elm streets, then south again on Bay Street to the Sky Dome, where the festival was held. The festival featured attractions from MEGA (Mandell Entertainment Group Amusements) such as "inflatables," as well as an Israeli-style shuk (open air market). A record crowd of almost twenty-five thousand people turned out.

In 2005, the Walk with Israel introduced its first-ever mascot. A city-wide competition to name the lion brought in 250 suggestions from children; the winning name was Arr-yeah, a combination of a cheer and the Hebrew word for lion, "aryeh." Close to fifteen thousand people, including eight-hundred volunteers, turned out for the event on Sunday, 29 May. There were four co-chairs this year: Beth Singer, Nelly Zagdanski, Sara Zagdanksi, and Felicia Posluns. Mike "Pinball" Clemens of the Toronto Argonauts appeared at the kick-off party, and the crowd was led by Police Chief Bill Blair. The six-kilometre downtown route began at Coronation Park near the gates to the CNE and ended up at Ontario Place for the RioCan Festival.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains photographs of Arr-yeah the lion mascot and electronic versions of the banners made for the event. It also includes a DVD and video version of the promotional video shown in schools.

The 2007 Walk with Israel was held on Sunday, 27 May 2007. It started with a kick-off party in Coronation Park by the waterfront, which featured inflatables and music. Prominent attendees were Stéphane Dion, leader of the Liberal Party of Canada; John Baird, the federal minister of the environment; and more than twenty other elected officials. The walk was co-chaired by Ruth Eckstein and Helen Silverstein. The largest incentive for those raising money was to be a "chai walker": if one raised $1,800, one had the choice of a $500 prize and was invited onstage during the kick-off party. With a threatening weather forecast, only seven thousand people came out. The fundraising cause was a new daycare centre in northern Israel and providing employment training to Ethiopian women in a community near Tel Aviv.
At the end of the ten-kilometre route, people enjoyed the kosher barbecue, games, rides, and arts and crafts at the RioCan Carnival at Ontario Place.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series consists of a recruitment video and two t-shirts from the 2007 Walk with Israel. One t-shirt is white and the other, for volunteers, is red. The t-shirts read "Heart and Sole!"

The 2008 Walk with Israel took place on Sunday, 25 May 2008. It was chaired by Ruth Ekstein and Helen Silverstein. The walk director at UJA was Michelle Golfman, who was assisted by staff Ellen Drazner, Shimmy Wenner, and Elena Livertovsky. In the wake of recent rocket attacks from Gaza, a portion of the $500,000 raised was earmarked for children and their families in Sderot and the Western Negev. New to the walk this year was an inter-school competition to raise the most money. There were many incentives and the "top sixty" were recognized in honour of Israel's sixtieth birthday. A new and major sponsor of the walk this year was "yogen fruz."
The day began with a kick-off party in Coronation Park, then followed a square route around downtown Toronto as far north as Dundas Street, and returned to the lakefront for the RioCan Carnival at the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place. A shorter route, ending at the first rest stop, formed the Bubbie Zaidie Walk. The crowd numbered more than fifteen thousand and included Stéphane Dion, leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, and Peter Shurman, MPP.
