Polish rabbinical group is re-established


The Rabbinical Association of Poland is being revived for the first time since the 1930s.

Rabbis in Poland are set to meet in Lodz on Saturday to form the country’s first national association of rabbis since the Nazi era. The rabbis will re-establish the Rabbinical Association of Poland in a ceremony attended by Israel’s chief rabbi, Yona Metzger, and officiated by Poland’s chief rabbi, Michael Schudrich, according to the group Shavei Israel.

The ceremony will be part of Shavei Israel’s annual conference for hidden Jews. Rabbis from Lodz, Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw will take part in the ceremony.
