Event Details

Jonathan Lev will share the incredible story of his participation in the 2022 JCC Krakow Ride for the Living. The Ride for the Living is a three-day experience in Poland that combines Holocaust education with a powerful 60-mile bike ride from the gates of Auschwitz-Birkenau to the JCC in Krakow, Poland. The Ride coincides with the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow, the largest presentation of contemporary Jewish culture in the world. Every year the Festival features almost 300 events during 10 days with 30,000 participants from around the world.

Jonathan’s trip was more than a bike ride, but was a journey where he experienced Krakow’s Jewish past, present, and future all at the same time. Jonathan will use photos, videos, and stories to share the complex rebirth of Jewish life in Krakow while reflecting on his graduate research in Holocaust memory.

Jonathan Lev has been the Executive Director of the Boulder JCC since 2010. He holds a Master in Public Administration in Nonprofit Management (MPA) and a Master in Hebrew and Judaic Studies (MA) from NYU. He is a Wexner Field Fellow, Schusterman ROI Community Member, and received the 2020 Boulder Chamber of Commerce Community Impact Award.
