Dallas Holocaust Museum Upstander Speaker Series: Rabbi Michael Schudrich
As part of their Upstander Speaker Series, the Dallas Holocaust Museum will welcome Poland’s Chief Rabbi, Rabbi Michael Schudrich.
When a skinhead punched Rabbi Michael Schudrich on a street in Warsaw, the Chief Rabbi of Poland punched him back. This is just one of the reasons why Poland needs him. For centuries, Poland was home to the largest Jewish community in the world, but nearly 90 percent of that community was murdered during the Holocaust. Many who survived left, vowing never to return. Of those who stayed, many hid their Jewish roots. Consequently, generations of Poles have grown not knowing of their heritage.
Since the fall of Communism in 1989, a growing number of Poles have learned of their Jewish roots. Rabbi Schudrich is the person they often turn to for help.
VIP tickets will include a reception with Rabbi Schudrich at 5:30 pm.
