24. Festiwal Kultury Żydowskiej | 24th Jewish Culture Festival
27.06 – 06.07.2014




This year we are celebrating 25th anniversary of the first free elections in our country, marking the fall of communism. Gazeta Wyborcza, the largest Polish daily, organized a plebiscite for its readers to choose event and person who were especially significant for the city and its citizens within those past 25 years of democracy. Our Festival got nominated as one of the 25 events– now this is your turn to vote for the Festival (until February 3rd). Below you can find a link to the website, where you can vote – it is all in Polish unfortunately, but here you can find step-by-step instruction how to vote.


Vote for the Festival >>>



(February – April, 2014)


After short break we invite you to join new series of cultural and educational events in Cheder Cafe. Between February and April we will keep you busy in many different ways: we will celebrate 5th birthday of the Cheder Cafe, we will celebrate Purim, we will bake challa and hamantashen, learn Yiddish and also Hebrew calligraphy, will learn about the Jewish natural medicine and … tailoring! And everything will start on February 6th with the presentation by Festival’s Director Janusz Makuch under the title: Klezmer is Dead!  We are waiting for you in Cheder Cafe!
