Located inside a former Jewish prayer house which was in operation from the 1880s up until WWII, this building was saved from ruin, renovated, and opened as a Jewish cultural centre in 1993. Today it subsists on a steady diet of lectures, concerts, art exhibits, film screenings and other events that reflect Jewish life in Poland's past and present; check their website for the schedule, and drop in to connect with this unique community. In summer they have regular daily opening hours from about 10:00 and operate a bookshop/antique store in the basement, plus the Sara cafe/bar on the ground floor, which features a small rooftop patio with views over Plac Nowy (one of Kazimierz's best-kept secrets). In winter the building and cafe/bar is basically only open on days when they are hosting events (3 or 4 days a week); events typically start at 18:00, doors open at 16:00.
