Thousands of Harley Davidson motorcyclists from across the United States – many of them Evangelical priests — are in Israel to take part in the Run to the Wall Israel
campaign in honor of IDF soldiers.

The delegation of motorist-priests are members of the organization Mission:M25 – a group that dedicates itself to promote and encourage soldiers and veterans of the United States Army. The group holds various similar tours throughout the world in support of soldiers worldwide.

“It will be the first time the American church has ever done anything like this to thank the Israeli soldier,” said M25 Director Gary Burd.

Members of Harley Davidson Israel have been invited to join the group’s route which will ride from Tel Aviv, along and across Israel, through Ashkelon, Caeserea, the Dead Sea and ending at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

The ministers will visit 10 war memorial sites and will plant trees in memory of fallen Israeli soldiers.
