BBYO Teens Heading to March of the Living

More than 160 teens making up BBYO’s National Teen Delegation to the March of the Living are on their way to Poland this evening. The teens have high expectations for their upcoming journey.

The teens will spend their first week in Poland learning about Jewish communities of the past and visiting concentration camps. To mark Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, teens from more than sixty countries will take part in a moving two-mile “March of the Living” from Auschwitz to Birkenau, concluding with the singing of Hatikvah, which reaffirms “Am Yisrael Chai – The Jewish People Live.”

After this emotional week, the teens will fly from Poland to Israel and will join millions of Israelis in celebrating Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel’s 68th Independence Day festivities. During their week in Israel, the teens will enjoy the major highlights of the country including Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and the Dead Sea.

Check this blog regularly throughout the next two weeks for updates from the teens and their staff during this amazing journey.
