MOTL Programs & Registration


March of the Living Australia is proud to offer 3 Programs – a Year 11 Student program, an Adult program and the latest addition to our range of Programs – a Young Adult program (for 18-35 year olds).


Year 11 Student Program

Year 11 Students (traditionally from Sydney, Melbourne and Perth – but we have had participants from Gold Coast, Canberra and Adelaide as well) embark on an educational journey that is absolutely unique. Not only do the students get to learn from the educators, survivors, madrichim and other staff members, they learn from each other. They experience a huge emotional and intellectual growth spurt that lays the foundation for enhanced involvement and awareness on numerous levels, both personal and communal. The program is open to Jewish students from all schools (not only Jewish Day schools) and all religious affiliations.

If you are currently a year 10 student wishing to register for next year's MOTL please register here


Adult Program

The 1st Adult delegation from Australia embarked on March of the Living in 2004 and more than 400 Australian Adults have participated in this amazing journey to-date. The Australian participants join up with other Adult participants from Canada, USA and South Africa to form an international Adult delegation. This 'international flavor' creates a unique environment that completely enhances the experience. The Educators/Guides are world-renowned experts and by all accounts the participants 'just can't get enough of them'.

Due to extremely high levels of interest in the unique double anniversary 2018 celebratory program (30 years of March of the Living and 70 years of Israel's independence) and a quota of 40 Adult participants from Australia (which has already been filled), we are unfortunately unable at this stage to accept any further registrations.  We are happy to put your name down on a "waiting list" in the event that we are successful in increasing the quota or alternatively in the case of any cancellations.  If this is the case, please send an urgent expression of interest to Renny Rychter - renny@motl.com.au (our Co-President and coordinator of the Adult program) and he will be in touch.


Young Adults Program (18-35)

We are very keen to send an Australian Young Adult contingent (25-35 year olds) together with a group from Los Angeles and are calling for Expressions of Interest. If you are interested (2018 promises to be an incredibly exciting trip due to the celebration of 2 milestone anniversaries - 30 years since the inception of March of the Living and Israel’s 70th year of independence) please contact Cedric Geffen - cedric@motl.com.au no later than October 1, 2017 for more details.  For more information, click here
