Volunteers from 10 countries help us in organization and realization of the 28th Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow. Together with Poles, youngsters and adults from Germany, United States, Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Australia, Ukraine and Belarus, help us with the festival. And for the second time we also have a group of senior volunteers!
Thank you for your hard work! We wish you a lot of strength, good energy and good vibes!
A Macher in yiddish means someone who is really important and gets things done. Someone who is very active and dynamic, capable to do anything.
Macher as a festival volunteer, helps us with the Jewish Culture Festival in the summer, but throughout the year the Machers support our activities in Cheder, where they also can implement their own projects – with our support. Being a Macher means also learning, developing skills and meeting a lot of new and inspiring people.
