N.Y.-born director sees deepening Jewish engagement; in Warsaw, unexpected signs of growth.
Krakow — At four crowded tables in the ground-floor meeting room of the Jewish Community Centre here, some hundred people attended the first-night seder during Passover last week.
It was the “biggest community seder in Poland,” says Jonathan Ornstein, the JCC’s New York-born director.
It’s another sign that the only such American-style JCC in the country is succeeding.
