Is it true that Hasidism conquered Eastern Europe already in the 18th century? What were the limits of Hasidic influences? How, when and why did they change? When did the golden age of Hasidism come to an end and how did it get revived after the Holocaust?

4 February (Monday), 6 PM, language: PL, free admission

The author of the Atlas, Prof. Marcin Wodziński, will answer these and other questions concerning the geography of Hasidism, one of the most important Jewish religious movements in the history of Judaism.
