‘Amazing Race’ gets an Israeli spin in Boston

( A large number of young professionals, college students, and children in the Boston area will convene on Oct. 6 for the sixth annual Amazing Israel Race, an Israel-themed scavenger hunt for local Jewish landmarks put together by Combined Jewish Philanthropies and the Consulate General of Israel to New England. An all-day event which this year takes place in Brookline, Mass., the Amazing Israel Race, whose name derives from the popular reality television show, starts with a power lunch and a chance for participants to meet like-minded area Jews.

“The Amazing Israel Race is a great way for college students, families, and everyone who loves Israel to publicly celebrate that connection in a fun and engaging way,” said Matt Hoffman, whose group, Israel Campus Roundtable, is also helping to organize the event. First-place winners receive an $800 stipend towards a flight to Israel, and second-place winners get a year’s worth of free hummus.
