The activity of Lublin Jewish Organization

Joseph Dakar provides a number of reasons that constitute the activity of Lublin Jewish Organization These are: the memory of the Holocaust and the Jewish history of Lublin, exploring family histories and the members' roots. But the most important reason that ensures the continuation of these activities, and makes subsequent generations join these actions is the sense of sentimental and emotional attachment to Lublin.

The organization is in contact with Lublin Jews living in other countries: the United States, Australia, France. It publishes the magazine "Kol Lublin", which is sent to Lublin Jews living in various countries around the world. The Jewish Lublin Organization also organizes meetings in Israel to commemorate important events connected with the history of Lublin Jews, such as the meeting on the anniversary of the liquidation of the ghetto in Majdan Tatarski.

In Lublin, the Organization is committed to promoting contemporary Israeli art and culture.
