Hanukkah-Christmas Tree Project of the Jewish Culture Festival in Kraków

 

 

On December 18, 2014, the Machers (Kraków Jewish Culture Festival Volunteers) and Mi Polin (art duo: Helena Czernek and Aleksander Prugar) surprised the Kazimierz District of the City of Kraków with Hanukkah-Christmas Trees.  Christmas trees on Brzozowa square in the formerly Jewish Kazimierz district of Kraków were secretly decorated with beautifully designed and glittering menorahs, stars of David, dreidls, and snowmen, in addition to traditional tree ornaments associated with the Christian celebration of Christmas.


The glass Christmas-Hanukkah tree decorations reflect their shapes on the walls of the houses surrounding the district square in Kazimierz.


Passersby were intrigued by the spectacle.

The purpose of this project is to highlight the dual Jewish-Christian character of the district of Kazimierz.
