Udi and Tom Rose

THE STORY:

We are the Roses-- from the great state of Indiana - my name is Udi Rose. I am a 15 year old freshman at North Central High School in Indianapolis. My wing man also is my Aba. His name is Tom Rose. Both my maternal grandparents were survivors; my grandmother from Warsaw, who fled east when the war started; and my grandfather who is 91 years young and lives in Kfar Saba, Israel. While the town he was born in today is located in Belarus, it was part of Poland until after the war.  

Even though both my granparents are from Poland, this will be the first visit to the country by anyone in my family. My dad and I love to ride our bikes and always look for new places to ride when we travel around the US. The Ride for the Living will be the first time we have done a ride outside of the US or Israel. I was born in Israel by the way-- way back in 2001.  

We can't wait to ride in Poland! We are especially excited about the chance to play even a small role in the remarkable rebirth of Jewish life in Poland in general and Krakow in particular. We can't wait to learn more about Jewish Poland and participate in the 2016 'Ride for the Living.'   

You can play your part to, even if you aren't going on the ride, by helping us help renew Jewish life in Poland. We would be so honored if you would sponsor our participation in this year's 'Ride for the Living'

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.

The 2016 Ride For The Living will take place from June 2-5, 2016. Ride For The Living consists of 4 days of educational programs, tours of Krakow, Shabbat dinner with the community, and the highlight of event, the bike ride on June 3, 2016.  

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.
