National Adult March of the Living
The Adult March of the Living is a journey to Poland and Israel to learn about the Jewish community that once flourished in Europe, the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the establishment and survival of the State of Israel. The opportunity to travel with Holocaust survivors is limited and Canadian adults are encouraged to take advantage of this unique experience.
The Tentative Dates for 2020 are April 18 - May 3
The program is one week in Poland and one week in Israel..
Participants have the option of opting out of the Israel portion of the program.
A number of optional pre-trip seminars to help prepare for the program will be offered in Toronto. These sessions are a great way to enhance your knowledge and get to know your fellow participants, but are not mandatory. If you are unable to attend or live in a city which is not offering sessions, we will email you materials to help you prepare for the program.
on The ground, the group is led by a dynamic team of educators including Canadian staff, an Israeli tour guide and Holocaust survivors who share their personal experiences and wisdom throughout the trip.
In ISRAEL: The program will combine visits to exciting places and ancient sites, including Jerusalem, the Galilee and Golan Heights, Tel Aviv, the Negev Desert and more. On Yom Hazikaron (Israel’s Remembrance Day) participants will attend ceremonies honoring Israeli soldiers who sacrificed their lives in defense of their country. The next evening, Yom Ha’aztmaut (Israel’s Independence Day) will include a celebration in honor of the establishment of the State of Israel.
