This is Our Legacy Gala: Celebrating 30 Years of the March of the Living

For 30 years, the March of the Living has engaged, impacted and changed the lives of more than 12,000 participants. From high school students, to young adults, to older adults and the remarkable survivor educators, the March has provided a powerful life-changing experience for all who have had the opportunity to participate.

The 30th Anniversary Gala will celebrate the success of the March of the Living and secure the financial viability of Holocaust education travel programs for years to come, ensuring that the lessons of the Holocaust continue to be imparted to as many people as possible, and particularly our youth.

Our remarkable survivor educators have given selflessly of themselves to educate others, despite living through painful memories ignited by returning to the sights of the horrors they endured. In recognition of this extraordinary contribution to future generations, each survivor educator from Toronto will be honored that evening for their courage of spirit. Each will be recognized with a Legacy Fund established in their name at the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto from the proceeds of the Gala.

Eli Rubenstein, a driving force and visionary leader, is the only person who has been involved in every March since its inception in Canada in 1988. Eli will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award for his commitment and unceasing dedication to promoting and enhancing the March of the Living program. A Legacy Fund will also be established from the Gala’s proceeds in Eli’s name to permanently recognize his contributions.

Opportunities exist to honour any or all of our survivor educators, Eli Rubenstein, or the March of the Living program in general. We invite you to become a sponsor and be part of what promises to be an extraordinary and meaningful evening!
