Why do Jews still live in Poland?
This talk is an invitation to look closely into the Polish Jewish history post WWII, to understand the influence of communist regime on the Jews in Poland and how did the fall of Berlin wall allow for Jewish life to flourish again in Poland.
This talk will also bring closer the stories of young Polish Jews today, the discovery stories of Jewish roots and the Jewish journeys they take. We will also discuss the influence of Hillel and communal programs, connections to Israel and worldwide Jewish community on building and strengthening the Jewish identity.
