"When kids go on this March, they understand who they are, where they came from, what our people have lived for, what they have died for, and what they have to be alive for. They understand what Israel is ... and, why Israel is there."
                                                                                                         - Rabbi Felipe Goodman

The Audrey Merkin March of the Living Scholarship Fund was conceived at the Shiva meal 18 years ago, following the funeral of TBS board member and dear friend, Audrey.


Shirley Chaplin, Carol Jeffries, and then Temple President, Sandy Mallin wanted to honor Audrey’s memory with a scholarship fund to send Las Vegas teens on the life-changing experience of the March of The Living. Our teens travel with thousands of fellow students from countries all over the world to bear witness to the devastating atrocities of the Holocaust and then travel to Israel to celebrate the miracle of our homeland, Israel.


Our principal patron, Freddie Glusman, owner of Las Vegas landmark restaurant, Piero's, has generously underwritten our fundraising luncheon since the first year. The Women’s League of TBS and Jewish Nevada have been supporters, along with

Las Vegas community members, enabling over 120 teens to share this experience.


In 2023, new leaders, Andrea Gordon, Marci Murdock, Sydney Murdock, and Heidi Straus stepped up to expand this fund and increase participation in our community.


March of the Living Nevada is on the move! Join us!


Thank you,
