Passover in Krakow: Jewish Revival in Poland

Seventy years after most of Polish Jewry died in the Holocaust, it seems that Jewish life in Poland is experiencing a revival.

More than 150 people gathered at the Jewish Community Center in Krakow on Monday evening to celebrate the Passover Seder. Among them were non-Jews, mostly Catholic Poles, with a great interest in Judaism. For many of them, it was the first Jewish holiday they had ever celebrated.

Leading the Seder was David Pash, son of the city’s Chief Rabbi Boaz Pash.

Guests sat around tables laden with traditional Passover dishes and kosher Israeli wine and matza, and listened to the Haggada in Hebrew and Polish.
