The Jewish Voice and Herald: Jewish charities on Top 400 list: See how they ranked
Julian Swalter, now 17, found out he was Jewish when he was 10. Larysa vanBeek and Marcjanna Kubala were 13 before they found out they were Jewish. All three of these teens are Polish, and all three are involved in the growing Jewish community in Poland. We met them all last weekend at Limud Keshet in Warsaw, a weekend-long program of Jewish learning. JFRI’s Community Development Committee (CDC) made the decision last year to allocate funding to this program, operated by the American Joint Distribution Committee (JDC). The support our Jewish community has offered to the Polish Jewish community through the JDC is having a significant impact.
