The March of the Living is a once in a lifetime, life-changing experience for our graduating senior class. Jewish teens, together with adults, travel to Poland and Israel on a two-week international, educational program. On Yom Hashoah, (Holocaust Memorial Day), students march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built during World War II, and then in Israel observe Yom HaZikaron (Israel Memorial Day) and celebrate Yom Ha'Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day).
As members of the Southern Region for March of the Living, our students meet Jewish teenagers from all over the world during this experience, while having a unique and memorable journey as a group alongside our own faculty.
The purpose of the March of the Living
is for young people and adults to learn the lessons of the Holocaust and to lead the Jewish people into the future vowing “Never Again.”
