Poland Trip Info Session and Film Viewing
Sun, January 8, 2017 at 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
The History and Revival of Jewish Life and Culture in Warsaw and Kraków
Film Viewing and Informational Session
From June 25-July 2 2017, join Ansche Chesed on a journey of learning, culture, and commemoration. For 1,000 years, Poland was the heartland of European Jewish life and culture. Rabbinic Judaism, Yiddish and Hebrew literature, secular Jewish political parties, and other forms of a vital, diverse Jewish culture flourished in Poland until the Holocaust. Now, 28 years after the fall of Communism, come and witness the current Jewish Revival.
Please join us on Sunday, January 8th for an informational session. We will host a conversation with Jonathan Ornstein (the director of the JCC Krakow); a viewing and discussion of the film Hiding and Seeking with the film’s director Oren Rudavsky (a member of Ansche Chesed); and Jessica Rosenberg, the tour manager from the Taube Center (the group who is running the trip on the Poland side) will be present to answer any questions.
Registration forms and draft itinerary will be available.
