Ride for the Living (RFTL) is an annual bike ride from Auschwitz- Birkenau to the JCC in Krakow, Poland. Thousands gather to commemorate those lost, as well as celebrate the rebirth of Jewish life in Poland. Join your local community for a satellite ride at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades- an inspirational 75-minute stationary bike ride featuring our JCC instructors. Together, we unite our Jewish communities both here in New Jersey and in Krakow, Poland for a memorable experience. We will never forget.
This not-to-be-missed experience supports the JCC in Krakow and Holocaust education and awareness at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades.
The ride is sponsored by the Rubach Family and is named after Leon Rubach z”l, who survived the Holocaust as a hidden child in Poland. Proceeds support the JCC in Krakow, Poland, and Holocaust education and awareness at the Kaplen JCC.
