18:00 h
07 Dec





Hajnt”, meaning  "today” in Yiddish, is a lecture program initiated by JCC Warsaw.  This lecture series is a forum for representatives of different disciplines to discuss the Jewish view on modern world issues.The format of this series will be expert debates between professionals from various fields and rabbis.




The upcoming meeting from the “Hajnt” series will be devoted to Jewish identity: we will try to answer the ever bothering question, who is a Jew? Someone whose mother is Jewish? A believer of Judaism? Can you be Jewish being an atheist? Can a convert to Judaism be called a Jew? Who can join a Jewish congregation in Poland, and who is eligible for an Israeli citizenship?




This session will feature  Rabbi Avi Baumol - Rabbinic Representative of the Chief Rabbi of Poland and rabbi Malgorzata Kordowicz - hebrew philologist, a new graduate of the Rabbinic Jewish Theological Seminary school. The meeting will be led by Katarzyna Zimmerer.
