At JCC Krakow miracles are happening every day. In a city where Jewish life was once thought to have seen its end, we have nurtured a growing, caring, vibrant Jewish community. One of the most meaningful signs of this miraculous rebirth is the creation of FRAJDA (joy) Early Childhood Center where for the first time in 70 years Jewish children are receiving a pluralistic Jewish education. Our work is focused on caring for our elderly Holocaust survivors and reconnecting people to their roots, as well as securing a Jewish future by raising a new generation of proud Jews.

Your support has helped us nurture the miracle of the rebirth of Jewish life in Poland. We need your help to keep the light burning.
