March of the Living 2023 Is Accepting Applications
After three years, during which COVID-19 and the invasion of Ukraine hampered travel to Europe, Federation subsidiary the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE) is again planning a full March of the Living Program to Poland and Israel, April 16-30, 2023. In addition to the two-week trip for Jewish Miami-Dade County high school seniors, CAJE provides six months of supplemental education about the Holocaust and Israel, allowing participants to explore their Jewish identity and enhance their sense of Klal Yisrael, or Jewish peoplehood. “The March of the Living is a defining moment in rounding out the Jewish identities of our young adults," says CAJE Board Chair Sara Bejar. "They're going from the lowest of lows, standing in Auschwitz internalizing the atrocities they had only conceptualized all their lives, to the highest of highs waving Israeli flags in Jerusalem on Yom Ha'Atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day). They come to understand that their Jewish identity is one of resilience, pride and life.” All Jewish Miami-Dade high school seniors who reside and/or go to school in Miami-Dade County are eligible to apply through November 16.
