I attended with a group of 30+ young people and adults, who hailed from either the UK or US. Most of the young people had ADHD and co-morbid conditions that were ALL made to feel welcome regardless of disability and religion etc. A talk given by Ms. Singer (pre-Sabbath meal) was both relaxed yet very informative that everyone in the...

I was at JCC for a Yiddish workshop during the Jewish Culture Festival. I was quite an interesting experience. However it is pity that I didn't explore more in the JCC building.

What makes this JCC unique is the fact that the doors are open to all at all times. There are no guards present nor oppressive security. The environment is welcoming, inviting and warm. This is a place where young mingle with old, where individuals are reconnecting with their heritage and are discovering their roots. If you happen to pass through,... More

We stopped here on a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter. A young woman from NYC who is working at the center gave us information on the center, why it was important and how it connects other Jewish people in the community. There are only 600 registered Jewish people in Krakow so this center is an important part of their... More

In the heart of the Jewish District/ Kaziemierz District. Not really much to see here as it's a community center for the area. There are times when they have concerts and events but when we were there nothing was really going on. This is one I could have skipped.

How wonderful to see a thriving JCC in the place that removed nearly every trace of Jewry. They do an incredible job here and provided support in finding out more about my family's history during WWII when living in Krakow.

Our Jewish tour stopped by the new JCC in Krakow and heard an inspiring talk by the JCC director. I met several of the young people who staff this friendly, cheerful, modern place. It is great to see the revitalization of the Jewish identity that is happening in Krakow, apart and aside from the religious groups trying to gain adherents.... More

I visited Krakow with a group while in the area for The March of the Living, a memorial ceremony for the holocaust. First of all, Krakow is a beautiful European city and we enjoyed our time there. The JCC experience was exactly what we needed after the solemn and sad visits we made to the concentration camps and holocaust memorial... More
