“In Search of More than One Truth”: Mi Dor Le Dor Program’s Transmission of Polish Jewish Heritage
The Mi Dor Le Dor (MDLD) program is the flagship educational leadership development program of the Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland Foundation. Dedicated to transmitting and teaching Polish-Jewish heritage, MDLD was the first program of its kind in Poland, allowing participants to explore and experiment with historical narratives. The program promotes Polish-Jewish literacy and strengthened identities, instilling cultural pride and preparing participants to assist in the year-round Taube Jewish Heritage Tour program as well as to lead Jewish communal, educational, and cultural institutions.
