Congratulations to all the winners of the JewishPress.com raffle at The Event
The Museum of the History of Polish Jews, which is set to open next year, will receive a $7 million grant from two Jewish philanthropic foundations.
The gift from the Koret and Taub Foundations will finance eight galleries that will take visitors through 1,000 years of Jewish history in Poland. The exhibits will include a scale replica of a 17th century synagogue roof’s interior and will feature original artifacts from the Polish Jewish community, as well as multimedia.
Work on the museum began in 2005. It is a joint project of the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland, the City of Warsaw and the Polish Ministry of Culture.
“Poland is where my parents and grandparents were born,” said Tad Taube, president of the Koret Foundation and chairman of the Taube Foundation, in the press release. “This is their story. Poland is where I was born. This also is my story.”
