The Jewish Community of Warsaw

The Jewish Community of Warsaw, with a branch in Lublin, is one of ten organizations forming the Union of Jewish Communities in Poland. Anyone, with at least one Jewish grandparent, can become a member, based on the so-called “Law of Return”. The Jewish Community of Warsaw continues the tradition of the pre-war Jewish Communities, therefore fulfilling the mission of self-government. Presently the Community has about 800 members and their number is constantly growing.

Members of our Community are both young and elderly, professionals and seniors – anybody, who wants to be a part of the Community and work towards its success, can join. Everyone can find their own living space, regardless of their level of religious devotion. The Community is not an orthodox organisation and its members practise both traditional and liberal Judaism.

The Community also serves as an organizer of events for the local Jewish population which aims at creating a wide range of social, educational and cultural activities. We also offer help and social support for people in need.
