Information meeting for March of the Living, which will take place in early May 2016. For students in grades 10, 11, 12 in the 2015-2016 school year. Teens and their parents are invited to hear about this incredible life-changing experience. March of the Living spends one week in Poland where teens visit towns where Jewish life thrived pre-WW II, and also visit sites where atrocities took place. The highlight is the March from Auschwitz to Birkenau, where thousands of Jews from around the world unite to remember the victims. The second week is spent in Israel, marking Yom Hazikaron and celebrating Yom Ha'Atzmaut.
