Temple Beth Sholom recently welcomed Jonathan Ornstein, executive director of the Jewish Community Center of Krakow, and two other representatives of the Krakow JCC, Justin Kadis and Kasia Leonardi.
Ornstein, Kadis and Leonardi celebrated Shabbat with the TBS community and led discussions about the revival of Jewish life in Krakow. Members of the TBS contingent who visited Krakow last summer were excited to reconnect with Ornstein. The group traveled together on TBS’ Eastern Europe Experience led by Rabbi Steven Lindemann and Cantor Jen Cohen. Those embarking this summer on TBS’ Eastern Europe Experience are excited to continue more conversations with the trio.
Enjoying a chance to catch up were (from left), Rabbi Steven Lindemann, Kasia Leonardi, Steve Ravitz, Jonathan Ornstein, and Justin Kadis.
