WEST BLOOMFIELD — The Walk for Israel began almost a dozen years ago continuing the tradition of bringing together individuals from all cultures and religions to honor and celebrate the good in all people.

The Ticket’s Dan Leach will be hosting the event and spoke with Andre Douville executive director of Temple Shir Shalom and CEO of Walk for Israel.

“There seems to be this racial bigotry and hatred and whether or not its tolerated — it shouldn’t be. It’s really frightening to people,” says Douville. “And I think people are looking for an opportunity to come together.”

The Walk for Israel– this Sunday, May 7 –provides the chance to express the positive.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring everybody together and give them a chance to do something good and positive,” says Douville.

The Walk for Israel has grown each year in size — working to unite the metro Detroit community to celebrate Israel.
