The 11th Singer’s Warsaw Festival of Jewish Culture will be held Aug. 23-31 this year, offering attractions including music and theater performances, lectures, workshops and movie screenings.

The festival is traditionally held on Próżna Street and Grzybowski Square in central Warsaw, once hubs of the capital’s Jewish community, and each year it aims to recreate the neighborhood’s ambiance from before World War II.

Audiences will be able to enjoy concerts performed by Jewish cantors and klezmer music bands, and to sample delicious kosher food.

Apart from Próżna Street and Grzybowski Square, some of this year’s festival events will be held in the districts of Muranów and Praga. Festival audiences will see several artistic installations as well as movies with Jewish themes, and will be able to attend workshops and meetings with the authors of books on Jewish culture.

The originator of the festival is Gołda Tencer, an actress and director of the State Jewish Theater.

Artists and performers invited to take part in this year’s festival will seek new ways to explore the wealth of Jewish culture.

The 200 or so festival events will include exhibitions and workshops for kids and adults.

The festival is named after Polish-born Jewish American Nobel Prize-winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902-1991), who felt a strong affection for Warsaw and wrote about the city in many of his novels.
