The 4th Days of Jewish Culture organised in Mińsk Mazowiecki to answer the question: Who is man? took place on 24-26 November, 2018. The question was asked by Abraham Joshua Heschel, one of the greatest Jewish philosophers, the descendant of Jakub Perłow, a local zaddik from Mińsk Mazowiecki. The presence of a special guest – Susannah Heschel, his daughter, a professor of Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College in the USA, commemorated this famous descendant of Mińsk Mazowiecki’s Jews.
On 24th November kids were invited to the Museum of Mińsk to participate in workshops “Child. Fish. Human being” organised by Renata Płotczyk from the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews. Teenagers attended photography workshops “What is there behind old photographs?” conducted by Marek Łodyga from the Association of Mińsk Mazowiecki Friends. Last but not least, families participated in the popular tour of the city “In the search for a human being. Discovering the traces of Jews from Mińsk Mazowiecki” organised by a history teacher Ewa Borkowska from the local primary school.
