The Jewish Culture Festival was co-created and co-founded by Januch Makuch of Krakow 30 years ago and the Festival has grown enormously. The Festival has been sponsored since the beginning by the City of Krakow and by various other organizations. The goal of the Festival is to show-case Jewish culture while uniting people of good will and counter-acting anti-Semitism, anti-Polonism, and various other -isms. Two JLS members, Michael Steinman and Elizabeth Zechenter attended the events in Krakow. JLS is the sponsor of the Festival.
