Katka Reszke and Jacqueline Nicholls are Jewish artists and educators based in the US and UK, respectively. 

Since 2015 they have been bringing collaborative programming to the Krakow JCC. This year will mark our first Ride for the Living - please help us support and celebrate Jewish life in Poland against the odds... old and new. 

Ride For The Living (RFTL) is a 4-day event (June 28 - July 1, 2018) that gives you a chance to immerse yourself in the Jewish past, present, and future and to discover and celebrate Jewish life in Poland. A full program of RFTL activities, including the highlight bike ride, will take place during the Jewish Culture Festival (June 23 - July 1, 2018), which welcomes over 30,000 people and offers around 300 events each year. The 2018 edition will mark 5 years of Ride For The Living, 10 years of JCC Krakow, and 30 years of the Jewish Culture Festival. Join us for this meaningful anniversary and become part of Jewish life in Poland!
