28th Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow: Zion

The 28th edition of the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow will be held between June 22nd and July 1st, 2018.

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, the 100th anniversary of Polish independence, the 50th anniversary of March 1968 events in Poland and … exactly the 30th year since the first edition of the Jewish Culture Festival in 1988.

We dedicate the upcoming edition of the Festival to Zion - the real one as well as to the Zion of dreams. Because Zion is both solid and eternal.

The Mount of Zion is solid and eternal. In both metaphorical and literal meanings. Zionism is a love of Zion.

In metaphorical and literal meaning, Zion is the Land of Israel, with its eternal capital in Jerusalem.

I understand and love Krakow, love Poland, and many other places and countries. At the same time, I love Eretz Yisroel and Yerushalayim.

Yisroel and Yerushalayim are my state of mind, light of my mind, independence for my spirit, a seal in the Book of Life.

I have lived long enough to know that nothing is being given to us to last forever. Sooner or later we lose things: they are either taken away from us in our lifetime or we lose life, and then, nothing really matters at all.

It is important for me that in 2018 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Polish independence and the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel.

Both my countries returned to their Zion: one after 123 years, the other one after 2000 years. I wish neither country will lose its Zion, never again.

Janusz Makuch, founder and director
of the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow
