OUR GREAT JEWISH WEDDING
During the event “Our Great Jewish Wedding” residents and tourists become acquainted with the multicultural part of the city.
Lublin was the center of a strong tradition of teaching the Talmud, one of the first Hebrew printing houses was here, the Seym of the Four Lands gathered here, and the famous Hasidic mystics, such as Jaakow Icchak ha-Lewi Horowic called the Seer of Lublin. For one day, the former noise of Krawiecka Street will come back, where Jewish women sold hot pea and bagels. Krawiecka Street reminds us Jewish, pre-war Lublin, its residents, their joy and sorrows, loud courtyards due to children playing games.
20 AUGUST 2017!
