March of the Living is an incredible experience for students in grades 10 to 12. We spend one week in Poland exploring the concentration camps, as well as the vibrant Jewish life that existed pre World War II. We join thousands of others from around the world in the 3 km March from Auschwitz to Birkenau, known as the March of the Living. Week 2 is spent in Israel, where we travel and appreciate the Jewish homeland, fresh from witnessing Jewish devastation. We mark Yom Hazikaron, and celebrate Yom Ha'Atzmaut. This trip is a life-changing experience that will stay with the students their whole lives.
