The first Polish language Chanuka guide

The Shavei Yisrael Organization, which was founded by JPost columnist Michael Freund, has distributed the first Polish language guides to Chanuka, many of which will go to people who only recently discovered that they are Jews.
"In recent years, an increasing number of Poles have rediscovered their Jewish ancestry, seeking to reclaim the precious heritage that was so brutally taken from them and their forebears," he said.

"It is our hope that this book will, in some small way, enable a new generation of Polish Jews to celebrate Chanukah with joy, as well as gain a better understanding of our eternal faith, its principles and beliefs," Freund added.

Although there are only 4,000 Jews officially registered in Poland, the organization estimates that there are tens of thousands of others who have concealed their true identity, or are simply unaware of it.
Kol HaKavod (more power to you!).
