From the Holocaust to New Life

May 14 – 17, 2023

On occasion of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel, join us for the March of the Nations from May 14-17, 2023! Come to Jerusalem with people from many nations and all over Israel, and become a part of God’s mission: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord.” (Is 2:3)

When David Ben Gurion proclaimed the modern State of Israel on May 14, 1948, the words of the prophets in the Bible were fulfilled after thousands of years. They had spoken of the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. It is one of the greatest miracles of our time that this happened only three years after the greatest catastrophe in Jewish history, the Holocaust. The March of the Nations is calling Christians from around the world, who stand for Israel and against antisemitism, to come together to celebrate the 75th birthday of the modern state of Israel.

What to expect during these three special days in Israel:

Learn how blessings for Israel and the nations can come from actively confronting the 2,000 year history of Christian antisemitism that saw its horrible culmination in the Holocaust.

Meet Holocaust survivors and their descendants living in Israel today, and get to to know their stories.

Celebrate the miracle of the fulfillment of biblical prophecy with Christians from around the world.

Follow the call of the prophets: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord. The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” (Is 2:3)

Practical Information

Conference Language and Translation

Conference Language for the event will be English. Translation will be available at a cost into the following languages: German, French, Polish, Russian and Spanish.

Children / Youth

Children and youth are more than welcome for the conference and the March of the Nations. However, we are unable to provide a children’s program. We request all parents to look after their own kids.

Food

In the area surrounding the conference venue, there are numerous restaurants and other possibilities to purchase something to eat.

During the long lunch and evening breaks, resp., on Monday and Tuesday, the participants, who have booked half board, will have the opportunity to return to their hotels to eat.

Accommodation and Transportation

Participants are responsible for organizing their own accommodation and transportation. However, we do offer convenient Accommodation Packages including transportation in a variety of price ranges, which you can book right here on the March of the Nations website.

The accommodation package includes transfers to and from the marches in the cities back to Jerusalem.

Participants who have not booked an accommodation package must organize their own travel to and from the cities.

March of Life and the March of the Nations

The March of Life Movement was born out of repentance and an inner brokenness of the descendants of Nazi perpetrators who were ready to look at the history of guilt of their families and call it by name. At the heart of the movement is the humble request for forgiveness for indifferent silence, antisemitism and hatred of the Jewish people. Every year, this message mobilizes thousands of people to take to the streets in support of Israel and against antisemitism. More information:

6000 People coming to Israel

On the occasion of Israel’s 70th anniversary, the first March of the Nations in 2018 brought many people to Jerusalem who had already taken to the streets for Israel with Marches of Life in their respective nations. In total, 6,000 participants from the nations and Israel marched through downtown Jerusalem. In the following years, the March of the Nations was held in various cities in Israel. For Israel’s 75th anniversary the March of the Nations is coming back to Jerusalem.

FAQ

Is it possible to participate just in the March of the Nations without the Conference?

For international participants, the conference and March of the Nations have been designed as a single event. As a rule, it is possible to participate just in the March just by itself. Registration for the March of the Nations for international participants, however, will only go online in March 2023, if there are still any free spaces available by then. In order to secure your place, we recommend all international participants to register now for the March of the Nations including the conference.

March of the Nations in ten cities - Can I choose in which city I will be at the March of Nations?

In March 2023, we will ask participants to tell us which city they would like to go to. There will be three wishes to choose from, but since the number of participants in each city is limited, we cannot guarantee that the first wish will be granted.

How can I participate in the March of the Nations, if I am Israeli?

In January 2023, a Hebrew website for Israelis will go online, offering registration for the March of the Nations under special terms for Israelis, and we will publish more detailed information about the marches in the different cities and Jerusalem. Of course, Israelis can also register regularly for the international Christian conference leading up to the march.

How can I bring my own group to the March of the Nations and Conference?

Complete the group form, and you will receive a special offer for groups.

Mobile Phone – Will I be able to use my mobile phone in Israel?

If you have an international plan, your cell phone may work in Israel, please check with your local provider.

Safety – Is it safe to travel to Israel?

Every year between 3 and 4 million tourists vacation in Israel. The planes of 90+ airlines wouldn’t fly to Israel if it weren’t safe. Israel is an extremely safe country to visit and tour. We would not encourage tourists to come if we felt they would be in danger.

Health – Medicines – Vaccinations

Israel is an ultra-modern country with the world’s highest number of doctors per capita, and a health and hospital system. Currently no vaccinations including Covid-19 vaccinations are required to visit Israel (unless you have recently been in an area where there have been epidemics of yellow fever, cholera or ebola). You can buy most standard over-the-counter equivalent of North American drugs in Israel. You can also bring supplies of your standard prescription drugs with you. (If you need to bring syringes and vials of medicine – bring along a letter from your doctor attesting to your needs, just in case.) If you need to see a doctor in Israel, check with your hotel concierge. Travel insurance (including medical coverage) is always recommended for all foreign travel. A health insurance also covering Covid-19 is mandatory.

Current information about the entry requirements and the Covid-19 rules on site can be found here: https://corona.health.gov.il/en/abroad/arriving-foreign-nationals/

Internet – Will I have easy internet access?

Most hotels in Israel have Wi-Fi available for hotel guests at customary prices. Many cafes and restaurants offer a complementary Wi-Fi service. Since September 2013, Tel Aviv offers a citywide free Wi-Fi network which provides 80 free Internet “hot spots” across the city.

Water – Can I drink tap water in Israel?

Absolutely: tap water in Israel is safe and delicious. But, you will also find bottled mineral water everywhere. (It’s important to make sure you drink a lot, especially if you are walking, hiking or exercising during hot weather.)

Taxes – What taxes can I expect to pay Israel?

The VAT (Value Added Tax) in Israel is 17%. It’s already included in most prices in Israel. VAT is waived for tourists at hotels, tour companies and car rental agencies. Like in Europe and elsewhere, tourists can receive a refund of the VAT they paid on purchases when departing the country, the refund program and the purchase amount in one tax invoice including VAT must exceed 400 ILS.
