A panel of experts moderated by Poland’s Honorary Consul General Marek Lesniewski-Laas will discuss the revived interest in the history of Jews in Poland and the resurgence of Jewish culture in Poland today.

Panelists include:
Amy Halpern Degen and Josh Degen, American facilitators for the advanced completion of the Bialystok Cemetery Restoration, a project focusing on the preservation of Jewish history in Bialystok and restoration of neglected Jewish cemeteries in the area; Leora Tec, founder and director of Bridge To Poland, an organization that sponsors tours to the country highlighting how non-Jewish Poles are commemorating Jewish life in Poland today; Katka Reszke, author of “Return of the Jew: Identity Narratives of the Third Post-Holocaust Generation of Jews in Poland,” filmmaker and photographer working in the U.S. and Poland.

Vilna Shul offers $5 validated parking after 4 p.m. and on weekends. Parking validation is only good for the underground parking at the Charles River Plaza/Cambridge Street Garage at 165 Cambridge St. Entrance to the underground garage is between the Charles River Plaza Shopping Center (Whole Foods/CVS) and Au Bon Pain, near the intersection of Blossom St. and Cambridge St. Yellow tickets from the surface lot at Whole Foods cannot be validated.

The Vilna Shul, Boston’s Center for Jewish Culture, is Boston’s only landmark historic Jewish building. Today, it serves as a modern-day cultural center and living museum in downtown Boston.
