Chidusz the Jewish Magazine, published monthly in Wrocław since 2013 with support of the local Jewish Community. Chidusz in Hebrew means innovation, novelty. We want our magazine to be a Jewish answer to the challenges of today’s world. Our sources are both the most traditional Jewish texts as well as the contemporary Israeli literature. Our mission is to co-create a modern Jewish identity in Europe while remaining faithful to Jewish tradition. Our magazine is headquartered on the same street where the Jewish Theological Seminary used to be located, where the most fundamental and burning questions and needs of the modern world were once discussed and answered. We would like the voice of Wallstrasse, now Włodkowica Street, to once again become an important element of contemporary Jewish life. It is extremely important for us to introduce the Polish Jewish community to a wider non-Jewish audience. We strive to break through stereotypical ways of thinking about Jews and about the painful and difficult history of the Second World War.
