March of the Nations Israel Trail

Come to Israel show your friendship to the Jewish people
In times of crisis we witness the shouts of antisemites and antagonists hating Jews getting louder. Now more than ever, it is important to stand in friendship with Israel and the Jewish people.
The March of the Nations in Israel
The Bible speaks of a time when the nations will turn towards Israel again. Let us be the ones to follow God’s call: “Arise, walk the length and the breadth of the land, for I will give it to you”! (Genesis 13:17)
 
This is why we invite you to the March of the Nations from May 22 to 26, 2022: Hike the Israel National Trail (INT) from the north to the south of Israel, expressing solidarity with God’s people.
 
Recommended by National Geographic, the INT is more than a trail – it is well known throughout Israel, runs through a wide variety of regions and landscapes and has become a symbol of national identity. We want to stand with Israel in this very special way.
Encounters in Israel
We also want to take the message of friendship into the cities and to those people who live far off the tourist routes. Therefore we will gather in Metula (border to Libanon), Kfar Saba (Tel Aviv area, border to the West Bank), Netiv ha’asara (border to the Gaza Strip) and Tiberias (Lake Galilee) to finish the event together with residents and Holocaust survivors, as well as their descendents in the second and third generation, and have a public march with them.
 
We are grateful for the large number of supporters of the March of the Nations and for guests and speakers with Jewish and Christian background.
 
Together we invite you: come and join us at the March of the Nations 2022 in Israel.
 
Jobst Bittner Founder and President March of Life

The March of the Nations will end with events and marches in the four cities in Israel where the participants will be divided (Metula, Tiberias, Kfar Saba, Netiv HaAsara).

In the registration form, participants can indicate their preference in which city they would like to participate. However, we ask for your understanding that for organizational reasons we cannot guarantee a specific city. At the beginning of May we will announce to which city the participant will be assigned.

Participants are responsible for organizing their own food and drinks. However, the organizer will provide detailed information on shopping and food options, as well as special recommendations for meals during the hikes on the Israel Trail.

Participants are responsible for arranging their own accommodation in Israel. The organizer will provide detailed information about accommodation options, adapted to the particular stage and city of the participant, after registration.

Participants are responsible for organizing their own transportation in Israel. After registration, the organizer will provide detailed information about transportation options, adapted to the particular stage and city of the participant. In principle, it will be possible to move around by public transport as well as by rental car.

By registering, the participant confirms his/her own responsibility that he/she meets the health requirements for participation. For the participation in the March of the Nations a general basic fitness and a stable health condition is required in any case. However, the division of the route sections into degrees of difficulty, makes it possible for those having a lower fitness level still able to participate in the trail.

After registration, participants will receive more detailed information for the necessary equipment during the hikes on the Israel Trail, according to the category they have chosen. For category 1 and 2 participants, the lightest possible luggage is crucial. There will be an opportunity for them to temporarily store luggage they do not need during the trail in Jerusalem.

Generally, the event language is English. Translation is available in German and on request in Polish, Russian and Spanish.
