THE STORY:

 

Hi Friends,

I'm traveling to Poland with my parents at the end of May on a trip to explore family history. As some of you know, both of my grandparents on my Mom's side of the family survived the Holocaust. My grandmother, Celia Feldman, was liberated from Auschwitz in 1945, and we'll be visiting the camp on our trip. On June 3rd, I'll be biking from Auschwitz to the Jewich Community Center in Krakow to raise money for the JCC's annual campaign.

Ride For the Living is an annual fundraising event under the patronage of Chief Rabbi of Poland, Michael Schudrich. The 55-mile bicycle ride from Auschwitz-Birkenau to JCC Krakow is a journey to not only remember Jewish history, but to celebrate and support the miraculous rebirth of Jewish life in Poland today.

Ride For The Living was inspired by JCC Krakow member Robert Desmond who rode his bicycle 1,350 miles from London to Auschwitz visiting WWII sites of liberation along his journey. After joining the JCC and becoming an active member, he realized his ride should not end in a place of loss, but rather at a place of hope and renewal, JCC Krakow! Join the Jewish community and friends from around the world by riding or donating today.
