Poland sees largest gathering of rabbis since WWII
WARSAW: Dozens of rabbis from across Europe have gathered in Warsaw, the largest such meeting of Jewish religious leaders in Poland since World War II.
Poland`s Chief Rabbi Michael Schudrich called the three-day gathering of about 150 rabbis "a real testament to the revival of Jewish life in Poland."
The Conference of European Rabbis began Monday, when several of the representatives met with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski. On Wednesday, the rabbis are to meet Polish "righteous Gentiles," that is, Christians who risked their lives to save Jews during the war.
Poland was home to Europe`s largest Jewish community before the war, numbering nearly 3.5 million. Most were murdered in ghettos and death camps that Germany built after invading and occupying Poland in 1939.
