March of the Living Meeting - April 27

On Wednesday, April 27th Kulanu will have a March of The Living Informational Meeting. March of the Living is an international, educational program that brings Jewish teens from all over the world to Poland on Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, to march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built during World War II, and then to Israel to observe Yom HaZikaron, Israel Memorial Day, and Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel Independence Day. Kulanu organizes trips in even years. Our next Kulanu March of the Living will take place in April 2012. These trips are amazing! If you are in 9th, 10th or 11th grade and would like to find out more about it, please come to the MOTL Informational Session on April 27th at 6:30 PM at Temple Beth El in Stamford where you will get to see photos from the 2010 trip, hear from teens, staff and a survivor who went on that trip and get all your questions about the March answered.

Kulanu, meaning “All Together,” is Stamford’s high quality, dynamic and innovative Jewish education program that brings together Jewish teens in grades 8 – 12 from a variety of backgrounds, beliefs and communities within Fairfield County. The Kulanu MOTL trip is the best in the area, as the teens prepare for the trip ahead of time in a Kulanu class, learning about the war, the camps and all the places they’ll visit. It also gives the group and staff an opportunity to bond together before heading off to Poland and Israel.
