In the spring of 2017, thousands of Jewish teens from all corners of the earth will gather together in Poland and Israel for an educational experience that will change their lives.
THE NEXT MARCH OF THE LIVING BEGINS APRIL 19, 2017
You will participate in a memorial service at one of the gas chambers/crematoria, in Birkenau, which will conclude with the singing of Hatikvah, reaffirming Am Yisrael Chai – The Jewish People Live. From Poland, you will fly to Israel to join the entire Jewish community in celebrating Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s 68th Independence Day, on May 12th. You will participate in a week of unforgettable experiences.
The March of the Living to Poland and Israel will cause you to encounter both the richness and anguish of our past and the hope for our future. This experience will help you understand how important both aspects are to your identity as a Jewish teenager living in the 21st century.
