Boston – The New England Friends of March of the Living (MOTL) is offering a $2,000 scholarship for every qualified Massachusetts high school junior or senior who wants to participate in a Jewish heritage trip to Poland and Israel.
The two-week trip will run April 24 – May 8, 2022. The purpose of the trip, which annually attracts 10,000 teens from 50 countries, is to teach students about the roots of prejudice and Holocaust history, build lifelong Jewish identity, create ambassadors for Israel, and build new friendships. Additionally, representatives of MOTL want to ensure that Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, which included organized attacks on Jews throughout Germany and Austria on the night of Nov. 9, 1938, is not forgotten.
Aaron Kischel, director of MOTL Teen Programming, says, “The frightening rise of global anti-Semitic rhetoric and events makes it crucial to remind the world, and teach the next generation, what happens when anti-Semitism is left unchecked.”
