THE MARCH OF THE LIVING

Shalom,

My sister, Marcia Tatz Wollner, has led March of the Living trips to Poland and Israel for over 10 years. This is a great opportunity for any 11th-12th graders you may know ~ think children, grandchildren, nieces/nephews, etc. Do not hesitate to contact Marcia for more information if you are at all interested.

The March of the Living is a two-week journey to Poland and Israel. In Poland, along with survivors, the teens visit Nazi concentration camps and become “witnesses” to the Holocaust. While in Poland, the teens commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day with a silent march between Auschwitz and Birkenau.

In Israel, the teens visit historic and contemporary sites to learn about the creation of the Jewish State, celebrating its existence and meaning of the continuity of the Jewish people. While in Israel the teens observe Yom HaZikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day and celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day.

Since its inception in 1988, this journey has become the world’s single largest Jewish education program for 11th and 12th graders attracting over 10,000 participants annually from all over the world.

The dates for this year’s MOTL are May 1- May 15, 2016. The cost, including domestic travel is $6375. Teen will be able to take the AP tests upon their return to the United States.
