mulit cultural cycle 1Grade 11 students of different cultural and religious backgrounds came together on Sunday, 23 August 2015, to cycle the challenging distance from Johannesburg to Durban, in the spirit of ubuntu.

Cycalive founded by Rabbi David Hazdan, emphasises multiculturalism and tolerance. As in previous years 20 cyclists from Torah Academy, Moletsane High and Pace Commercial Secondary School (both in Soweto) were joined by 4 boys from the Partnership2Gether region of Beith Shemesh – Metah Yehudah. This team of boys from diverse backgrounds will relay-cycle to spread goodwill learn about themselves and each other’s cultures and religions, raise funds for much needed educational projects, develop new friendships and highlight the importance of road safety for cyclists.

Rabbi Hazdan, Rabbi Chaikin, Tokyo Sexwale, Wendy Kahn, Clifford Garrun, Madeleine Fane and the Princpal from Pace Commercial Secondary School, addressed the cyclists and sponsors at a send-off ceremony on Sunday morning, at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, in Houghton. Lead by the metro police, Steel Wings motorcyclists and the Spring Filed Band, the cyclists received a rousing send off as they began their journey of outreach.

They are expected to arrive in Durban on Sunday, 31 August and will be hosted for Shabbos by the Council of KZN Jewry.
