Goals and principles
The idea to create the Judaica Foundation - Center for Jewish Culture emerged in Cracow in the late 1980s at a time of historic changes in Poland, among circles of people associated with culture, scholarship and the arts, in cooperation with the late President of the Jewish congregation in Cracow, Mr. Czeslaw Jakubowicz.The Foundation began its activities in 1991, and on November 24, 1993, the Center for Jewish Culture opened under its auspices. The best way to describe this enterprise is to say it is a civil initiative, whose main aims are these:

  • to preserve the Jewish heritage in the Kazimierz district of Cracow, and to perpetuate the memory of the centuries-long presence of the Jews in Poland, living side by side with Poles,

  • to disseminate knowledge of the history and culture of the Polish Jews among young people

  • to create a platform for Polish-Jewish dialogue

  • to promote the values of an open civil society.
