Our Journey

One highlight of the trip was spending Kabbalat Shabbat at a synagogue recently renovated... 

Renewing an awareness of the Jewish history of Korczyna is arguably just as important as the renovation of the physical cemetery itself, and to this end we engaged with the local community throughout our journey. We met with local officials from the Poland's culture ministry and local government, but perhaps the most fulfilling and important connections we made were with people almost our own age. We partnered with students from Korczyna's main public school, visiting them in their environment, while they visited us in the cemetery.
