BJE March of the Living

BJE March of the Living

Nov 11, 2016

BJE's March of the Living, which leaves Los Angeles on April 19, 2017, teaches powerful lessons of Jewish history, personal Jewish identity and has a profound impact on its participants. On Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Los Angeles delegation, along with thousands of people from all over the world, march from Auschwitz to Birkenau to remember the lives lost during the Holocaust. In Israel, programming gives participants the opportunity to look forward and see all of the incredible accomplishments and advancements the Jewish state has made since its establishment.

I believe that today, authentic Jewish educational experiences cannot happen in a vacuum like they used to. There has to be collaboration across institutions. We have to engage students and they have to be at the center to make learning relevant to them – starting with young students, all the way through high school.
