The Jewish Community Center of Krakow (JCC Krakow) won a $100,000 matching grant from the Taube Foundation.
The 1:1 match is designed to attract activists and donors to suggest ways to contribute to the revitalization of Jewish life in Poland.
“JCC Krakow is rebuilding Jewish life in the city of my birth,” said Tad Taube, who leads the foundation, “I am thrilled to be a strong supporter of its activities.”
Krakow hosts an annual Jewish cultural festival with Jewish musicians and artists from around the world. It also recently opened a division of the city’s historical museum in Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory. The rescue efforts of Oskar Schindler, who save roughly 1,200 Jewish people during the German occupation of Poland, were presented around the world in the 1993 film Schindler's List.
