For students in grades 11 & 12:
In April, thousands of Jewish teens from around the world will share a once-in-a-lifetime experience when they march three kilometers from Auschwitz to Birkenau. Participants will experience a memorial service in Birkenau, then fly to Israel to celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israel's Independence Day.

Jewish teens are able to travel to Israel with the financial assistance of the S.K.I.P. Fund (Send-a-Kid-to-Israel Program).

It is important to allow these teenagers to share their experiences, as their stories affirm in the strongest way the importance of trips to Israel in keeping teens engaged in leading Jewish lives.
