As 2018 draws to a close, I am reaching out to ask you to join me once again in showing your support for the innovative and courageous Czulent Jewish community in Krakow, Poland.
Since 2012, Friends of Czulent has raised funds through a small network of donors around the world in support of Czulent in Krakow. We have helped publish four award-winning Jewish Children’s Books and supported Czulent’s other educational and advocacy work in Krakow and throughout Poland.
I hope you will consider making a special end-of-year or new year gift now to continue this partnership, enabling Czulent to start 2019 with the resources it needs to contribute to the renewal of Jewish life in Krakow and on behalf of emerging Jewish communities throughout Poland.
Funds raised this year will support Czulent’s Book Project as well as other educational programs in Krakow and throughout Poland. Czulent sponsors one of the largest Jewish Sunday Schools in Poland. And their leaders are also involved in numerous public education and advocacy efforts to build tolerance for Jews and other minorities in Poland. Its work and the influence of its leaders extend throughout Europe and beyond.
The Czulent Jewish Association was established in 2004 as an independent association of young Jews in Krakow. Members have different interests and views but share the belief that Jewish identity is something precious that needs to be nurtured and strengthened, built on a foundation of pluralism, diversity, openness and tolerance, values which, I don’t have to remind you, are under assault around the world.
Please visit www.mightycause.com/story/Friendsofczulent to make a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more as we recommit to the important and unique work of the Czulent Jewish Association in Krakow.
Together we can make a very real difference in the life of this unique community.
Thanks very much!
Don PerlsteinFounder, Friends of Czulent
