About The Event
Join Steve when he comes to a Deli in your City
Steven Goode of the Chaiway Riders in Chicago is planning to ride to “The Top Jewish Deli in Every State” as developed by The Nosher magazine. The plan is to start on June 1, 2021 beginning in Chicago, IL.
This trip will be a fundraiser/awareness project for Mazon (mazon.org), which is a Jewish organization that focuses on eliminating hunger in both the United States and Israel. We have named the trip: “The Great American Deli Schlep”.
I have the entire route mapped and charted and will be visiting many of the cities which have JMA chapters.
My goal in working with the JMA membership is outlined below:
- Engage the JMA membership in my trip by having JMA members escort me to the delis in their hometown.
- Generate awareness for the local JMA chapter to the general public since I anticipate press coverage along the way.
- If the local JMA membership wishes to contribute financially to Mazon, that would be an added benefit.
Mazon’s office staff is handling much of the behind-the-scenes work (i.e. PR, coordination with the delis, logo design, swag materials, fundraising, etc.)
