Here's an impression of what it was like to be in such a crowd on Szeroka. The video gives an idea of this New Jewish Music from Poland band called Alte zachen, which ironically means "old stuff". It's followed by music from the Maghreb, present-day Marocco, or perhaps it includes more countries. All concerts except tha final one on Szeroka took place in the Temple Synagogue, an impressive Church-like building used by Reform Jews, situated just outside the original Jewish quarter Kazimierz. It's very different from all the other (smaller, orthodox) shuls. Nowadays the Temple Synagogue is only used for concerts. Miodowa street separates this synagogue from the original Jewish district, showing that the Reform Jews were closer to Polish Cracow than the Orthodox Jews of Kazimierz.
The Temple Synagogue on Ul. Miodowa
This is the area where everything takes place, it's never more than a 10-minute-walk away from our lovely hotel, which is on the same spot as the Kupa synagogue. The big stage is shown by a red circle, in front of the old synagogue.
Mayaan hotel has just a few simple and cheap rooms, but the garden in front is one of the loveliest spots in the neighbourhood.
