Adult March of the Living Mission

North Suburban Synagogue Beth El

Inaugural Adult "March of the Living" Mission

April 10 – April 19, 2018*


Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Adult March of the Living, celebrating both the 70th anniversaries of the State of Israel and North Suburban Synagogue.  Below you will find general information about the program.  We are now accepting deposits on a first come basis.

In April 2018, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, will conduct a March of the Living program for adults.  This journey, led by Rabbi Vernon Kurtz, begins after Passover, starting in Poland and continuing to Israel. Tailored to adults, this transformative experience features an enriched itinerary in both Poland and Israel. The adult group travels to sites of historical and contemporary interest in Poland, and experiences Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) on a “March of the Living” from Auschwitz to Birkenau alongside thousands of teens, adults and Holocaust survivors. This journey sheds light on Jewish life in Poland before and during the Holocaust as well as Jewish life in Poland today.  In Israel, participants commemorate Yom HaZikaron (Israel’s Memorial Day) and celebrate Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel’s Independence Day). The March of the Living is a unique program that honors, commemorates and explores the past, present, and future of the Jewish people. You can be there in April 2018, along with 12,000 other participants from around the world to commemorate two special and unique anniversaries- the 30th year anniversary of the March of the Living and the 70th year anniversary of the State of Israel.
