Come to Jerusalem to Celebrate Israel’s 70th Birthday!
Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. (Micah 4:2; NIV)
The March of the Nations plus Conference on May 13 – 15, 2018 will take place on a historic date: the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the State of Israel. Thousands of Christians from all nations will come to Jerusalem for a special conference. Together with Israelis from all spheres of society, they will walk from the Knesset to Mt. Zion: They honor Holocaust survivors, demonstrate publicly that the nations stand side by side with Israel and say “No!” to anti-Semitism!
Will we see you next year in Jerusalem? – Register now!

Statements about the March of Life
ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran is absolutely delighted to collaborate with the March of Life. This very important undertaking works to preserve the memory of humanity’s greatest atrocity, to reconcile between the descendants of victims and perpetrators, and to advocate for Israel and against anti-Semitism in the world, inculcating future generations with a love of humankind and the uncompromising belief in the equality of all individuals.
We support the March of Life in all its endeavors, and are proud to be among its partners.
Doron Almog, Major General (Res.), Chairman Aleh Negev-Nahalat Eran, Israel
The initiative “March of Life” is valuable and important. Transforming the former routes of deportations and death marches of the final months of the war into symbolic paths and Marches of Life is a public tribute to the victims and a tangible reminder of the – also public – deportation to certain death. The humble prayer initiative has long since become an international movement, including both eyewitnesses and those born later. I hope this idea will stir many people, and that there will be many “Marches of Life“ both with our feet and in our heads throughout the coming years.
Prof. Dr. Norbert Lammert, President of the German Bundestag
As a past participant of the Marches of Life, I experienced an overwhelming connection to Jews around the globe, including bonding with Holocaust survivors and their families. This event is important on many aspects, as it serves to make us remember this painful aspect of our history as a Jewish nation.
I believe this event is beneficial in that it teaches coming generations to be more tolerant and accepting of each other and provide a foundation for a better world to come.
Yoel Hasson, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, Israel
