LIVINGSTON--The inaugural Tour de Torah bike ride sponsored by the Men’s Club of Temple B’nai Abraham was held on Oct. 23 under a beautiful fall sky. More than 60 riders participated in a three -mile ride through South Mountain Reservation. There was a wide range of participants from children who were riding without training wheels for the first time to experienced bike enthusiasts. Along the route, students from B’nai Abraham’s Hey Class (seventh grade) served as event volunteers directing riders through the paths of the reservation. Event participants were entertained by the sounds of DJ Dillon Fabisch of "Beat That Beat Entertainment," and enjoyed refreshments while they mingled with fellow community members. The proceeds raised from this ride benefit the restoration and refurbishment of the temple’s ritual collection. The event successfully reached its fundraising goal thanks in part to the generous Gold Level sponsorships of local businesses such as The Briad Group, Hartzband Center for Hip and Knee Replacement and The Appelbaum Family.
In a joint message, event chairs Scott Mager and Jason Wiseberg were pleased with the success of this inaugural event, and noted the efforts of the TBA Men’s Club co-presidents Craig Kantor and Larry Moskowitz, as well as all who volunteered, sponsored, donated and participated in making the event a memorable experience.
