Michael Schudrich, Chief Rabbi of Poland, Speaks at Dallas Holocaust Museum’s Upstander Speaker Series Lecture
The Dallas Holocaust Museum held a lecture on Thursday, June 4 at the Jewish Community Center of Dallas as part of the Museum’s 2015 Upstander Speaker Series. The speaker, Chief Rabbi of Poland Michael Schudrich, has been described as the “24/7 Rabbi” for his tireless efforts to rebuild Jewish life in Poland that was almost completely destroyed during the Holocaust. Since the fall of Communism in 1989, a growing number of Poles have learned of their Jewish roots, and Rabbi Schudrich is the person they often turn to for help. The Rabbi spoke of personal experiences and of others who have discovered Judaism within the face of adversity.
