Every June since 1988, the historic Jewish quarter of Cracow, called Kazimierz, is filled once again with a crescendo of music, art, dance, lectures, exhibits, and more, all celebrating the nine-hundred-year history of Jews in Poland. Over the course of nine days, numerous Festival events take place in a variety of venues from morning to late into the night, showcasing both traditional and contemporary aspects of Jewish culture.
