March Of The Living Program
Posted on 06/24/2014 @ 12:15 AM
Hi, I’m Andre Becker, an Aleph from Ramon AZA #195 from Central Region West in California. Today, our director Ellen led an absolutely fantastic program about the March of the Living which is a march taken from Auschwitz to the close-by death camp Birkenau. There have been a lot of really good quality programs, but this program was the best because of how many emotions accompanied it. We started the program by writing down the people we are closest to, then the things we have accomplished so far in our life, and finally our hopes and dreams for the future. We watched an emotional video about the march that makes me extremely proud to be Jewish. Then a brave BBG stood up along with some of our amazing staff and told us their emotional stories of their journey, then answered our questions about this amazing trip. Ellen did an absolutely fantastic job planning and leading this program and I definitely think I can lead an event back home based on this amazing program. From all of CLTC 2- thank you Ellen. And thank you to Josh, my advisor, for being absolutely fantastic this first week. Peace Out!
