There’s An Israel Bobsled Team?
October 24 at 8 p.m. at Temple Emanuel in Newton, Mass
Join us to hear Jared Firestone, 2022 Winter Olympic hopeful as he talks about how the March of the Living has impacted his life and led him to Israel and a Winter Olympic hopeful in Bobsledding.
Twenty-nine year-old lawyer / real estate broker Jared Firestone, a native of Hollywood, Florida, has been training for Israel’s Skeleton National Team. Skeleton, a one-person version of the bobsled race, is an event where the competitor rides prone, head-first downhill on a sled, reaching up to 80 mph on a one-mile course. Currently the team includes three men and one woman.
To help with planning for the October 24 program, advance registration is requested. RSVP Link . Admission is free. Refreshments will be served.

The International March of the Living expresses its deep concern over the recent CNN special, State of Hate, which reported a dramatic and shocking increase in the rise of Anti-Semitism in the US in the last few years.
Teens from New England marched from Auschwitz to Birkenau concentration camps in Poland led by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. Then, just days later, they celebrated Israel’s 70th Independence Day in Jerusalem.
