Jewish Poland Today:
It's Complicated

Watch a video, see photos, and hear stories about our recent trip to Warsaw and Krakow. 

Earlier this summer, the Osher Marin JCC brought 24 people to Poland with Taube Jewish Heritage Tours. We are excited to present a video of highlights from the trip! To watch the video click here or keep an eye out for announcements on future screenings!

"To see how many non-Jewish Poles are trying to bring back the life that was is just astonishing." -Ted Block

"I don't think there's any way except in this JCC-Taube sponsored program that we could have had the experience that we've had." - Dr. Mitchell Golbus

"I expected to learn about the Holocaust and visit the sites. What I didn't expect to find was such a thriving Jewish community." - Linda Drucker

"This is the new Poland, the new Jewish community. There was a great sense of hope and optimism." - Julie Fingersh

"What struck me was the incredible vibrancy of Jewish life."- Dr. David Rudnick:  

“I discovered a homeland in Poland that I didn't know was mine." - Lisa Newmark

"They're starting something new in the place where so many of our ancestors lived. Jewishness is being reborn."- Rick Brenner

"I can show you pictures, I can talk about my experiences but the true story is you can't see or know Poland unless you come and see for yourself." - Sharon Block
