Miami’s Leo Martin March of the Living teaches teens that they have a role to play in being witnesses to our Jewish past and being upstanders for our Jewish future! The Miami March is an identity-building program that uses Poland as a platform to study the history of the Holocaust and examine the roots of prejudice, intolerance, and hatred. In Israel, programming gives participants the opportunity to reflect back while looking forward to observe the beauty and complexities of the Jewish state and their role in supporting it. The Miami March uniquely helps teens weave the most significant events of modern history into their own personal connection to Jewish peoplehood.

The March of the Living is a two-week international experience and a six month educational learning experience where teens from around the world come together each year and bear witness to the destruction of the Holocaust in Poland and then travel to Israel to rejoice in the Jewish Homeland. The program commemorates Yom HaShoah [Holocaust Memorial Day] marching from Auschwitz to Birkenau and celebrates Yom HaAtzmaut [Israeli Independence Day] in the land of Israel.
