The mood is light, the workout music is blasting, and the neon lights flash in the darkened exercise room. Wheels are spinning away as a group of girls cycles on stationary bikes at an intense pace, following their instructor. But this indoor cycling class – popularly known as spinning – is not your typical Saturday night class at the Mati Gym Club in Talpiot’s Hadar Mall.

The girls, mostly seminary students from North America, gathered together last Saturday night to raise funds for the non-profit OneFamily through a spinning class called #Spin4Ezra, dedicated to the memory of Ezra Schwartz. A yeshiva student from Sharon, Massachusetts, Schwartz, 18, was murdered in a Palestinian terrorist attack on his way to deliver food packages to Israeli soldiers in Gush Etzion on November 19.
