Meiselsa festival (1st edition)

ul. Meiselsa

Program

We cordially invite you to participate in the Meisels Festival, which will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2024.

The aim of the Meisels Festival is to popularize knowledge about Dov Ber Meisels (1798-1870) – the chief rabbi of Krakow and later Warsaw, an entrepreneur, politician, advocate for granting full citizenship rights to Jews, and a patriot fervently supporting Polish national liberation aspirations – as well as the integration of the local community.

We want to bring closer to the residents of Krakow, as well as to tourists visiting the city, an unknown, honorable chapter of Polish-Jewish coexistence through the prism of a different historical period than the dominant one in the mnemonic panorama of Krakow (and the entire country) – the Holocaust.

The Meisels Festival is a socio-educational-cultural initiative that will bring the patron of the street out of anonymity and additionally allow for the creation of a truly neighborly, integration-friendly atmosphere in a place dominated by tourism.

The program includes lectures (by Dr. Paweł Szapiro, Karolina Jakoweńko, Pamela Grajny-Brzezińska), a concert by the Mojše Band, discussions, tastings of Jewish cuisine in nearby venues, and other attractions.
