These events show creativity of our local Jewish community, so participating in the JCF you can get a complete picture of boh local and international Jewish culture.
Ride For The Living has been w flag event of the JCC Krakow in the past years. Few hundreds participants every year started their bike ride early morning at the Auschwitz-Birkenau gate and finished in the evening by crossing the gates of JCC Krakow. Covering that distance in this particular direction is a symbolical commemoration of all those, who lost their lives during the Holocaust. Finale of the ride will take place during the festival with many accompanying events . This year RFTL is held virtually, which means that regardless of where you are – you can still participate in the RFTL – please check details below.
