Walk the Line is back! Raising money to help rebuild Jewish communities in the Former Soviet Union, all are welcome to join an epic sponsored walk of a Jewish Timeline of London.
Just as with our previous walks, along the Northern Line and The “Jew”-bilee, during our Jewish Timeline journey we’ll be tied together and in costume. This year, we’ll be all in green, the colour of The Together Plan, and of the Belarusian flag. On the flag, green represents the hope of spring, and the revival of land, forests, and fields. Join us in Walk The Line: Jewish Timeline, by walking or sponsoring, and you’ll be helping the revival of forgotten Jewish communities in Belarus and beyond.
The 21-mile route begins at Mile End tube station at 9:00am. Beginning with the Jewish community’s immigrant routes in East London, we’ll march via an array of historical Jewish hotspots. From Bevis Marks, Brick Lane and Cable street, we’ll progress to David Ben-Gurion’s former home and the Jewish Museum, ending up in a thriving modern Jewish area of North London.
Walk With Us
If you’d like to get even more involved, we’d love you to join us for all or part of the route. You’ll get to meet some amazing young people (we should know!) and be part of an inspiring and important project.
It’s free to walk with us – just fill out the form below! All we ask is that you help us with fundraising by asking your family and friends to sponsor you.
The walk begins at Mile End tube station, where we will meet at 9:00am.
What is Walk the Line?
A few years ago, a few young adult members of Youth for Youth decided to walk the length of London Underground’s Northern Line – in onesies, and tied together – stopping at each station along the way. This unconventional fundraiser proved to be a huge success, raising over £1000, and was repeated two years later with the “Jew-bilee” line (wearing silly hats). This year, we decided to walk a different kind of line: a timeline of Jewish history, from the East End to Golders Green via a host of fascinating places in between. Researching the route took us through books, archives and the London Jewish Museum, and we have some truly illuminating stories to reveal as we walk.
