Owner description: The Jewish Community Centre of Krakow (JCC Krakow) is the de facto Jewish visitors center for Krakow, Poland. It provides social, educational, and community oriented services to the Jewish community of Krakow. Opened in April 2008 by HRH, The Prince of Wales, the JCC has quickly established itself as the focal point of Jewish life in the city both for Krakowians as well as visitors from Poland and abroad. Contact the JCC for information about Shabbat dinners and holiday programming; kosher catering; to set up an an appointment with the executive director, our genealogist, or community members. We can also help organize all of your travel needs.

We really loved our visit to JCC Krakow in June! It is a sight that shouldn't be missed. My son, who is there on a yearlong fellowship has not only been welcomed into the workplace, but has become part of their family. The volunteers and staff, Jewish and non-Jewish, work side by side in a colorful lively space warmly receiving locals and visitors from all over the world. After participating in the Ride for the Living on June 6, 2014, biking with 14 others from Auschwitz-Birkenau 55 miles to JCC Krakow, we were welcomed with balloons, JCC Krakow beer, loud applause and a delicious Shabbat meal. JCC Krakow is all about celebrating life, discovering Jewish roots, learning and building community, so close to where it almost ceased to exist. Stop in; meet the amazing staff, Jonathan, Justin, Avi, Sebastian, Kasia, Anna, Joanna, Ishbel, Agnieszka, and Agata and see for yourself!

Again I visited during the Jewish Cultural Festival. There were 3 or 4 lectures a day there, from learning Yiddish Singing, Question time, and so much more, this was another place I visited every day on one pretext or the other, I have now joined JCC and get their regular newsletters. They have got my 100% support. Also praise for the young people who acted as volunteer, young people who gave up their time to help and assist, nothing was to much trouble.

Pop in and say hi. This place is friendly, open and welcoming. I attended some very interesting talks and workshops during the festival and everyone I met here was friendly and happy to answer any questions.

Despite arriving in the middle of the Jewish Festival week, we didn't get the welcome here obviously received by other visitors. We were given little information so asked to visit the book shop in the basement as recommended on this site, to be told it only opened on a Tuesday. But today is Tuesday we said. Still no joy. So a big disappointment.
