For the third year running, FestivALT will stage public protest against the mistreatment of one of Kazimierz’s architectural jewels, the former Chevra Tehilim prayerhouse, whose walls bear the district’s most important still-existing Jewish religious paintings.  In 2017, with the approval of the official Jewish religious community, the owners of the bar currently housed there destroyed the original niche that held the Aron HaKodesh (the Ark of the Torah) in order to install a new door.

As part of this year’s intervention we will construct a life-sized reproduction of the destroyed wall, which will stand vigil outside the former building for the remainder of the festival. Come to show solidarity, ask questions, and learn more about the building.
