For many, Poland is not only a tourist destination or a place with a complex history, for many of us, Poland is also where our family came from and where the family saga took place,

Poland is home.

The special meeting will deal with the means to find family roots, how to locate family relatives or friends of the family etc.


The JHI is operating for several years a genealogical department which aids people who are seeking information about their family history.

Matan Shefi, a part of the JHI, will discuss the various ways to find family history, what can be discovered etc.


Because of COVID-19 there is only a limited number of seats.
