Ride for the LivingThe Ride For The Living is a 55-mile bicycle ride from Auschwitz to the JCC Krakow.  The Ride and its surrounding activities provide an unparalleled opportunity to immerse yourself in the Jewish past, present, and future and of Jewish life in Poland.

This year's Ride for the Living will take place during the Krakow Jewish Culture Festival, which welcomes over 30,000 people and offers around 300 events each year. 

2018 will mark 5 years of Ride For The Living, 10 years of JCC Krakow, and 30 years of the Jewish Culture Festival. Join us for this meaningful anniversary and become part of Jewish life in Poland!

Prior to the Ride, join a select group of Pittsburghers for a 3-day exploration of Warsaw, where we will get to know the thriving Jewish community and local culture. We will also spend time together as a group learning and discussing the past history of the Jews of Europe, and the current global Jewish community.
