I’m Jonathan, the executive director of the Jewish Community Centre in Krakow, Poland and I’m excited to be participating in the 2015 Ride For The Living.
Working here at the JCC, I am privileged to be part of a modern day miracle-the rebirth of Jewish life down the road from Auschwitz. The JCC has been open for 7 years and serves as the hub of Jewish life in our growing community, a diverse Jewish community of people young and old, observant and secular, many of whom have only recently learned of their Jewish backgrounds.
The JCC has over 100 members who are Holocaust survivors and the Ride For The Living route, from Auschwitz to the JCC traces the arc of their lives, from the darkness of the Shoah to the hope and light they find every day in our center.
Please consider supporting me in this ride and enabling us to continue to strengthen our community of survivors, their children, and grandchildren and to succeed in our goal of building a Jewish future in Krakow.
